Elsa's story

Elsa is a new member of the "Tupac Amaru I" communal bank, from the Yunguyo District and Province, Puno Department. She is 20 years old, has an incomplete higher education, lives with her partner, and has one child.
Elsa buys and sells clothing and tells us that with her first loan from the Movimiento Manuela Ramos, which will be for S/. 500.00 nuevos soles, she will be able to buy her merchandise.
Her dream for the future is to have her own house and to open a store.
What she most likes about her communal bank are the loan facilities it offers.
