A loan of $850 helped buy sheep.


Felipa's story

Felipa is a member of the Manuela de Hoy II Community bank, which is located in the Camicachi community, Ilave district, El Collao province, Puno department. She is 42, married, and she has four children. Felipa did not have the opportunity to get an education. She lives in the community of Segundo Camicachi.

She has worked with the Movimiento Manuela Ramos for years. She used her initial loan for 300 PEN to buy small livestock.

She now needs a loan for 2,500 PEN to buy sheep. Also, part of the money will be used in her food selling business.

Her wish is to keep working and to help her younger children.

She likes the savings and the ease of the payments.
