Melita's story

Melita is a persistent and hardworking woman. She lives in the district of Yarinacocha, which is in the region of Ucayali. Melita is 37 years old and the mother of 5 children, of whom 1 is already an adult. She sells secondhand clothing out of her home and has the support of her husband.


Melita joined the Communal Bank “Gotitas de Amor” (Droplets of Love) eight months ago. Her first loan of 500 soles was used to buy soft drinks, yogurts, and nectars. She is now requesting a loan of 1000 soles to buy more secondhand clothing. Melita’s goal is to open her own clothing store and sewing workshop.
