Sully Vanesa's story

Mrs. Sully Vanesa is a member of the Wiñay Communal Bank in the district of Puno, province and department of Puno. She is 22 years old, single, and has one son. She lives in the Victoria neighborhood in the city of Puno and is working on university studies in accounting.

She has worked with Kiva partner The Manuela Ramos Movement for three years and began with a loan of 300 new soles, which allowed her to increase her capital for her business selling essential products. With this loan of 1,500 new soles, she will be able to expand and stock her business. She will buy juices, cookies, noodles, sausages, sodas, and sweets. Her greatest wish is to finish her studies and be able to work independently. The things she enjoys most about her communal bank are the successes of the members and the harmony that exists within the group.
