Sarita's story

Sarita is a member of the “Siempre Unidas” (“Always United”) Communal Bank in the Tarapoto district of the province of San Martin. She is 43 years old, has 2 dependent children, and lives with her partner.

Her character and her desire to achieve her dreams motivated her to begin a business selling groceries from her own home. The income from her business helps support her household. Since she began her business she has steadily gained customers, and today she counts on many regulars who come to her shop daily to purchase merchandise, as she carries all the products that homemakers need and she is known for her charming service.

She will use this loan for 3,000 Peruvian nuevos soles to purchase bags of rice and sugar, crackers, pasta, salt, milk, cases of canned fish, crates of eggs, and personal hygiene products so that she can continue providing excellent customer service.

Sarita feels very good for being able to continue her business. She is very grateful to the Manuela Ramos Movement for providing women like her with opportunities for development in their chosen fields.
