A loan of $825 helped buy clothes to increase her stock.

Mayllori's story

Mayllori belongs to the El Abiseo community bank. She lives at Jr. Loreto Nº 218, Juanjui district, Mariscal Cáceres province, San Martín department. She is 47, married, and has three children. Two of her children are still dependent upon her.

Mayllori started with a loan of 300 PEN, and she is one of the oldest members in her bank. She started selling men’s underwear in the Central Market in the city of Juanjui. This was profitable, and she currently rents a larger stand where she sells women’s, men’s, and children’s clothes.

She is a well known businesswoman. Her main customers are residents of the community and friends.

With this loan for 2,500 PEN she will buy dozens (wholesale) of women’s and men’s underwear in all sizes, styles, and colors. She will buy pants, polo shirts, and blouses in different styles. This way she will be able to have a variety of items to offer her customers.

Mayllori says that the community bank is an excellent proposal for women who want to work and progress.
