Maruja's story

Maruja is a member of the "Virgen del Rosario" communal bank located in the Bellavista District, San Martin Department. She is 46 years old, single, and the mother of 6 children, one of whom is still dependent on her. Her first loan of 300 new soles allowed her to open her soft drink sales business for which she has a well stocked store which is well regarded by her customers. She is still involved in this work which gives her much personal, family and economic satisfaction. With this current 3000 new sol loan she intends to purchase soft drinks in various sizes and flavors to better serve her customers. She feels that she is a fighter and independent and, thanks to the support from Manuela Ramos, together with her family, has gotten ahead in life and currently enjoys better living conditions and economic stability thanks to her ever increasing sales.
