Lola's story

Señora Lola belongs to the "Uprightness and Work" Communal Bank in the District of Juanjui, Marshal Cáceres province, Department of San Martin. She lives in a shared home, is 32 years old and has 2 children that still depend on her.

She would like her children to become professionals and have their own incomes. In order to help them achieve this, she decided to start her own business. She has been dedicated to the sale of foods for 7 years. She carries out her sales by travelling to the adjoining towns along with her husband. She takes advantage of festival periods,such as local holidays, independence days, & San Juan. She tells us that her sales turn out well and she is present at every festive event that is presented in their city. Currently, she continues with the same business and it goes very well. She has loyal clients and already is known by her clients and for the delicious seasonings that she puts in her foods.

With this loan of 3,000 Soles she will buy supplies for her prepared foods, such as bags of rice and sugar, chickens and eggs in cartons, bananas in bunches, noodles and oil in dozens and also kitchen utensils in order to offer a better quality of service.

She feels compelled to continue with her food sales. In the future she would like to augment her business with a well-furnished restaurant to offer her clients better service and attention. She thanks the Manuela Ramos group for contributing to the fulfillment of her dreams and goals.
