Lizbeth's story

Lizbeth has been a member of the “Virgen de la Candelaria” communal bank for two years. She lives in the Ilave district, El Collao province, and department of Puno. She is 28 years old and is single with no children. She has completed school and has a business selling the Unique brand of beauty products.


Lizbeth’s first loan from Movimiento Manuela Ramos was for 500 soles, which allowed her to increase her working capital and purchase beauty products. This loan, for 1000 soles, will be used to purchase more merchandise, such as perfumes, lipsticks, creams, etc.


Her dream for the future is to grow her business and be able to get a good job in her profession. What she likes most about her communal bank is the savings accounts.
