Yudit Nelida's story

Yudit is a member of the Community Bank, “Chijuyo Copapujo”, located in the centre of Chijuyo Copapujo in the district of Llave, province of El Collao, department of Puno. She is 25 years old, and is married with tow kids. She did not finish high school, studying until first grade, and she lives in the community of Chijuyo Copapujo.

She has worked with the Manuela Ramos Movement for two years, and her first loan was of 500.00 soles, an amount that she used as capital to make rope.

She currently needs an additional loan, and this is why she is asking for the sum of 300.00 soles. With this amount she will buy cabuya (a type of natural fibre also known as fique) in Desaguadero to make rope with. She will also invest this capital in the mechanics shop she has with her husband.

Her dream is to buy a house and a small car.

She likes the ease of these loans and the savings she makes.
