Nilda's story

Nilda belongs to Mujeres Optimistas II Communal Bank, in San Hilarión, a district of the province San Martín, in the department San Martín. She no longer lives with a husband, is 57 years old, and the mother of 8 children -- all now grown -- who are her great pride.

Nilda is woman who has survived great difficulties on her walk through life. She had to separate from her husband, which had a significant affect on her. Now she finds herself in a better position and wishing to go on alone and get ahead with her own means. She started selling cosmetics from the company Unique gave her, and has been met with good results. Now with the business she manages, she feels very happy because of her success.

With this loan of S/ 500.00, she will buy beauty products such as perfume and cologne, creams, powder, lipstick, and nail polish, for her stock, as well as display case to display her products.

Nilda, with her maturity, follows the example of many women who have started businesses and who have, with persistence, succeeded in reaching their dreams. She is very grateful for Movimiento Manuela Ramos for helping her to start her own business and other women to grow as businesswomen.
