Leandrina is a member of the Communal Bank "Active Women II", located in the district of Juliaca, province of San Román, and department of Puno. She is 40 years old and married with three children (one of whom is independent). Leandrina has a primary school education.
Leandrina has worked with Manuela Ramos for six months. Her prior request for a loan was for the amount of 500 PEN, used to increase the capital of her business selling handicrafts.
She is now asking for a loan for 800 PEN, money that will be used to buy materials to create handicrafts to sell. Her dream is to expand her business and to have a sewing machine to do some of the work on.
Her favorite part about working with the Communal Bank is chatting with the other members.
