Nelly's story

Nelly is a hardworking woman who fights for her ideals. She lives in the District of Manantay in Ucayali Region. Nelly is 49 years old and the mother of 6 adult children. She and her husband sell tables and wooden slats from their business that they operate out of their home.


Nelly joined the Communal Bank “Loreto” three years ago. The first loan she received was in the amount of 300 soles and used to buy fruit that she sold from the sidewalk near her home. At the moment, she needs a loan of 2000 soles to buy wood for resale. Nelly’s goal is to have her own store where she can sell tables and move her business forward.
