Mirna's story

Mirna G. P. belongs to the “Las Nazarenas” community bank. She lives in the Camporverde district, is 45 years old, and has five children of which two are young. Her husband is in agriculture.

The first loan that she received from Manuela Ramos was for 300.00 Nuevos Soles, which she invested in sodas to sell from a soda fountain.

With this loan of 1,700.00 Nuevos Soles, she will buy tables, chairs, sodas and other products that will serve to improve her small business.

She thanks Manuela Ramos for the 4 years working together with her, which has allowed her to start her business and move forward as a businesswoman. It shows that today, more than ever, she feels the capacity to run her own business.
