Bertha's story

Bertha is a partner of "Banco Comunal 30 de Agosto" which is located in Ilave, in the province of El Collao, in Puno. She is 34 years old and is a single mother of two children. She has completed her studies in higher education.

For the past six years, Manuela Ramos has been her Field Partner. Her first loan was for 300 Peruvian soles, an amount which helped her acquire goods. Now she is asking for a loan of an additional 3,000 Peruvian soles. The loan will help her buy jewelry in Arequipa that she will sell in Ilave and in several markets in the area.

Bertha's dream is to open a jewelry shop and to educate her children. She enjoys meeting people and social gatherings.
