A loan of $350 helped to buy cereals.


Domitila's story

Mrs Domitila belongs to the Community Bank “Señor de Los Milagros” which is located in the Imicati Community, Yunguyo district, Chucuito Province, Department of Puno. She is 35 years old, is married and has 6 children. She completed her primary education and lives in the town of Imicati.

She has been working with the Manuela Ramos movement for a year, with an initial loan of 300 Peruvian soles, which she used for her business buying and selling cereals.

Now she requires a loan of 1000 soles to invest in her current business buying and selling cereals, which she takes to the town of Arequipa.

Her great dream is to be able to give her children an education and to have a herd of cattle to fatten up.

She likes the savings and the Community Bank meetings.
