Isabel's story

Isabel, 27, has been a member of the “Chojchoni” communal bank located in Copani district, Yunguyo province, Puno department, for the last 5 years. She is married and completed primary school. She lives with her four children who are 10, 8, 6 and 4 years of age.

She has sold blankets and bedspreads for the last 6 years on Saturdays and Sundays in La Paz, Bolivia. With her first, 300 new sol, loan from Manuela Ramos Movement she was able to increase her capital.

She will request a 1000 new sol loan to increase her merchandise; she will buy bedspreads and blankets at wholesale.

Her vision is to become a wholesaler of the same merchandise in La Paz, Bolivia.

What she likes best about her communal bank is the savings.
