A loan of $400 helped purchase jewelry.


Iris Teresa's story

IRIS TERESA A. M. is a member of the “SEÑOR DE LUREN” Microfinance Institute. She is a 46-year-old mother of two who lives on Salaverry Street in the city of Pucallpa. Her spouse works as a driver.

With the first 300.00 PEN loan that she received from Manuela Ramos, she started her own jewelry business.

Thanks to the loans that she has obtained, she and her family have made progress, and her jewelry business has improved. With this 1,200.00 PEN loan, she will purchase more jewelry to restock her business with new designs.

“Manuela Ramos is a Non-Governmental Organization that not only gives financial support, but also helps us to have self-esteem and feel good. I am very happy with what I have and who I am as a person.”
