Sarita's story

Sarita is a collaborative and entrepreneurial woman. She lives in the Manantay district, in the Ucayali region. She is 53 years old and has five children who are all adults. She sells soda and cleaning products together with one of her daughters. She runs this business from her house, and she counts on her husband's help.

She has been part of the community bank "Las Activas" for four years. Her first loan was for PEN 300, which she invested in soda. Now Sarita needs a loan of PEN 1500, which she will use to buy cleaning products. Sarita's goal is to increase sales and continue to contribute to her family's finances.
