A loan of $275 helped operating capital for her juice business.


Teofila Primitiva's story

Teofila is a member of the San Salvador Communal Bank, which is located in the District of Capachica, Province and Department of Puno. She is 54 years old, married, and has two children. Teofila did not finish her elementary school education.


She has worked with Manuela Ramos for ten years. The first loan she requested was in the amount of 300 PEN, which enabled her to start a business selling juices (papaya, banana, alfalfa, and other types).


Teofila is now requesting a new loan of 700 PEN to increase her business capital. Her dream is to make progress with her business. What she enjoys most about her Communal Bank is the interest she earns from her savings.
