Maria Lourdes's story

María Lourdes is a very considerate woman. She lives in the Calleria district in the Ucayali region. She is a 55 year old widow. She has four children who are still dependent upon her. She is a seamstress.

María Lourdes has been a part of the Las Activas Communal Bank for four years. Her first loan was for 300 PEN, which she used to buy fabric.

She now needs a loan for 1,000 PEN to buy ribbons, fabric, and accessories to improve her business. María Lourdes’s goal is to have a bigger shop where she could produce more.
