A loan of $350 helped buy sheep.

Carmen's story

Carmen is a member of the Jesús de Nazareth Community Bank, which is located in the López town center in the Ilave district, Collao province, Puno department. She is 40, married, and has two children. She has an elementary school education. She lives in the Titiri town center in the Choco Quillicami community.

She has worked with the Movimiento Manuela Ramos for two loan cycles. With her first loan for 500 PEN she bought sheep.

She currently needs an additional loan. That is why she is asking for 1,000 PEN to buy sheep to sell at the Ilave, Pilcuyo, and López fairs.

Her wish is to continue working.

She likes the meetings (of her Community Bank).
