A loan of $350 helped she will buy groceries to increase her merchandise size.


Yolith's story

Yolith belongs to the community bank "Corazón D. Jesús", district of San José D. Sisa, province of Dorado, region of San Martín. She is married, 63 years old, and the mother of 7 children, all of whom live independently. Faced with the need to contribute to the household earnings, she and her husband launched her small grocery business. With her first loan of S/. 300.00, she has been getting very good results since the business's opening due to the store's affordable prices and good customer service. She attends to her customers in her own home, a well equipped space for business. She continues with this same business where her primary customers are her neighbors and friends from the neighborhood. With this loan of S/. 1,000.00 she will buy more products to supply her business with merchandise like rice and sugar in bulk, eggs, personal hygiene and house cleaning products, packaged soda pops, candy, and other products that will keep her clientele satisfied. She feels very happy about the labor and services offered to her and gives her appreciation to the Movimiento Manuela Ramos for helping people like herself who want to work and come out ahead. She hopes that the organization continues offering these services for a long time and that they help many entrepreneuring families and women.
