A loan of $675 helped for the purchase of polleras (skirts).

Lidia's story

Lidia is a member of the Yunga Uyo Community Bank in the Yunguyo district and province in the Puno department. She is 38 years old, is married with three children and lives in the Central neighborhood. She has completed high school.

She has worked with the Manuela Ramos movement for two years. The activity to which she is dedicated is the purchase and sale of clothing (polleras). Her first loan was for 300 soles.

With this loan of 2000 soles, she will buy more polleras (skirts that are common in the region) in different colors and designs. She has indicated to us that this business needs a lot of capital.

Her dream is purchase a house in Lima and a cart so she may move easily.

Lidia likes her community bank's meetings, the sporting events and the skills she receives.
