A loan of $375 helped to buy grocery goods for her business selling grocery staples, fruit and chicken.


Condori Villena's story

M. is a member of the communal bank “Sol de Oro” (Golden Sun), located in the district of Juliaca, San Román province, in the Puno region. She is 42 years old, in a common law marriage, and has 2 children. She is schooled through the 2nd grade of secondary school.

M. has worked with the Manuela Ramos Movement for 5 years. She started with an initial loan of 300.00 soles, money that increased the capital of her grocery, chicken and fruit sales business. She will ask for a new loan of 1000.00 soles, money that she will invest in the purchase of grocery goods for her business.

Her dream is to have more capital and for her children to be professionals. The thing she likes most about the communal bank is what she gains in savings.
