Victoria's story

Mrs. Victoria is a member of the communal bank "Azangarinas Valientes" from the district and province Azangaro. She is a single mother and takes care of her 2 children. She is 60 years old and began working with the Movimiento Manuela Ramos one and a half years ago. She studied up to her junior year of high school. She currently sells trimmings or decorative fringes such as hooks, detergents, soaps, etc. She has a stall in the Azangaro market. The first loan she requested was S /. 500.00, which she invested in purchasing products to increase her merchandise. With this credit of S /. 1,000.00 nuevos soles, she will invest in buying more products, such as hooks, soap, and detergent, and thus, will be able to continue selling to generate her own income. Her vision for the future is to be able to travel and visit her relatives. What she likes most are the sport matches that are taking place at the communal banks.
