Rosa's story

Mrs. Rosa belongs to the community bank "Las Totoritas", located in the town of Chimu, in the district of Puno, in the province of Puno, in the region of Puno. She is 39 years old, married, and is the mother of 3 children. She was educated through 6th grade, and lives in the central part of town.

Mrs. Rosa has worked for the Operations of Manuela Ramos for almost 7 years. Her first loan was for 300 soles, which she used to buy raw materials for her handicrafts.

She is currently seeking a loan of 3000 soles for the purchase of raw materials for the production of quesanas, which she sells at regional fairs.

Her wish is to continue working and to be able to provide her children with an education and to see them become professionals someday.
She greatly appreciates the resources provided by these loans.
