Mirtha's story

Ms. Mirtha is a member of the Banco Comunal “Mujeres Sobresalientes II” in the Morales District in the Province of San Martin – Dept. of San Martin. She is married and is 45-years old with two children. They depend on her and are currently studying.

Her character and her desire to carry out her dreams, motivates her to undertake a business of selling rice and sugar at retail. It is because of this work ethic that she has seen great profits. She has been at this business for 5 years and right from the start she has gained a lot of clients and has become very well known. She has daily clients who come by her house to make purchases and works with her husband on the same business. They transport products along different streets, offering their goods to clients with attentiveness, kindness and charisma.

With this loan of S/. 1,500.00 she will buy rice and sugar by the kilo and with a portion of the loan they will also invest in spare parts, gas tanks, tools to distribute her goods. Mirtha has a great desire to continue working and is grateful to the Movimiento Manuela Ramos for helping women develop in the environment where they conduct business.
