A loan of $525 helped restock her store with more groceries.


Mirla Manuela's story

Mirla is a dynamic and enthusiastic woman who lives in the District of Yarina Cocha, in the Ucayali region of Peru. She is 57 years old and the mother of three adult children.


Mirla operates a retail grocery store located in her home. She works with her husband, who is a merchant, to provide financial support for two of their children who attend the University of Huánuco.


Mirla joined the Communal Bank “Las Lomas de Yarina” five years ago. The first loan she received was in the amount of 300 soles, which allowed her to invest in lingerie. Now she is requesting a loan of 1500 soles to buy grocery items to restock her store, which is growing steadily, and offer more merchandise to the public.


Mirla’s goal is to expand her business by also offering housewares.
