Liliana's story

Liliana is a member of the Mariscalense Communal Bank, which is located in the District of Juanjui, Mariscal Cáceres Province, Department of San Martín. She is 24 years old, in a common law marriage, and has one dependent child who attends school.

From a very young age, Liliana learned how to work by herself and become independent. She previously traveled to neighboring villages selling clothes, which enabled her to accumulate a little bit of savings. Now with the help and expertise of her mother-in-law, she sells pigs from a farm located outside of the city. Her daily routine begins at 6am when she has to feed the animals. Liliana has the constant support of her husband, since the two of them work together. She is very pleased with the work she has accomplished.

With her loan of 2000 soles, Liliana will buy piglets to raise and feed for later resale to her customers. Part of the money will also be used to buy pig feed, vitamins, and medicines to improve the growth and development of her animals.

Today Liliana feels she is an accomplished and independent woman. She continues to strive for her other dreams. She thanks Manuela Ramos for helping her start her business and supporting many more women who want to grow as entrepreneurs.
