Bonifacia's story

Bonifacia is a member of the community bank "Azangrarinas Valientes", from the district and province of Azangaro. She is 33 years old, is in a common law marriage and has two children. She has a sixth grade education. Bonifacia has worked with the Movimiento Manuela Ramos for one year. She and her husband are devoted to metalwork (the construction of doors, windows, etc.)

Bonifacia's first loan was for S/. 500.00 nuevos soles which she used to buy material for her workshop.

She is requesting a loan of S/. 1000.00 nuevos soles, with which she will buy some tools, manuals, and more materials. She will also improve the infrastructure of her workshop.

Her vision for the future is to expand her workshop and buy more machines that would considerably increase the production of products, therefore making her business income higher.

What she most appreciates about her community bank (lender organization) are the educational lectures it provides.
