Angela's story

Ángela belongs to the Jerusalem II cooperative bank, located in the Tarapoto province of San Martín. She is single, 50 years old, and the mother of 4 children; 1 is still in school and dependent on her financially. She has always been characterized by her fighting spirit and desire to get ahead through her own means. She started her own enterprise selling cosmetics from the Oriflame product line, and added the sale of earrings, rings, necklaces and bracelets to her business. Little by little, she became well-known among her customers and she tells us that today things are going very well for her. She is still in the same business currently, located in her own home. She always travels door-to-door selling her products to friends and neighbors. She has been in this line of business for years, and feels very gratified with her earnings. She plans to use this loan of 1,000 soles to buy materials such as: rings, different style and color stones, nylon thread, and hooks. She will also invest part of the money into cosmetics such as: perfumes and colognes, deodorants, body and face creams, lipsticks and powder compacts, so she can maintain a happy and satisfied client base. Angelita, as she is nicknamed, feels very content with what she does and is grateful to Manuela Ramos for helping her successfully work toward meeting her dreams and goals.
