Marina's story

Mrs. Marina belongs to the Communal Bank, "Nuestra Senora D. la Paz II:, in the Tarapoto District, San Martin Province, in San Martin Department. She is married, is 53 years old, and has 6 children, 3 of whom are still her dependents.

For some years she has been in the business of selling cleaned and cut-up chickens in a stall in the Central Market of her city. She began her business when she received a loan from Manuela Ramos and since that time, has done very well and has good customers.

In this, she continued to do better and better and now sells a large number of chickens. Currently she is continuing with the same business in the stall that she rents in the Central Market. There she offers her service to the community residents and to housewives.
With this $3,000 sol loan ($1025), she will buy live chickens in crates so that she can sell more and please her customers.

Today she is an independent woman, and she is the one who runs and makes the decisions in her business.
She says that "to belong to a group of women has helped her know what her rights are and together see that these are respected..
