Llerme's story

Llerme R. R. belongs to the Damas del Oriente (Ladies of the East) Communal Bank. Her home is located on Libertad Avenue, Callería (Pucallpa). She is 40 years of age and has three children, two of whom are minors. She and her partner have been married for 19 years. She works as a hairdresser in her own beauty salon. She has been working with Manuela Ramos/CrediMUJER for eight years. She used her first loan of 300 New Sols to buy beauty products and so that she could continue developing her small business which is located in her home. At present, her business has generated additional employment since she now has a young assistant working in her little business. With this loan of 1,200 New Sols she will fix up her shop and buy a dozen hair dyes, a set of scissors, a case of shampoo, etc. She is grateful to Manuela Ramos because no other bank would give her a loan while Manuela Ramos, without a lot of paperwork, trusted in her and motivated her to be responsible with her payments.
