Nilda Flor's story

Nilda Flor Z. G. belongs to the "Mujeres Solidarias" communal bank and lives in the district of Callería. She is 31 years old and has one son. Her husband works for a construction company.

She had a business selling clothing and the first time that she obtained a loan of 300 Nuevos Soles, 3 years ago, she used it to purchase clothing garments. She continues to work but now sells beauty products.

With this loan of 1,700 Nuevos Soles she will invest in the purchase of beauty products, as well as men and women's clothing to display in the small store she has in her house.

For the short time that she has been with the Manuela Ramos organization she feels happy with the help that it gives to women to help them get ahead; thanks to it she can help support her husband and son with the household necessities.
