Ysolina Nancy's story

Sra. Ysolina belongs to the Las Poderosas de Santa Rosa ["Powerful Women of Santa Rosa"] community bank in the Peruvian "departamento" of Puno. She is 23 years old, partnered and the mother of 1 son. She has studied nursing. She lives in the Revolucion neighborhood.

She began working with the Manuela Ramos movement, taking a first loan of S/.300 [300 soles], which she used to buy cosmetics from the Unique cosmetics line.

She most wants to practice her profession and follow some specialty.

What she likes best [about the community bank?] is being able to borrow easily, saving and the benefits they provide to women.
