A loan of $1,075 helped increase her operating capital.


Clementina's story

Clementina is a member of the San Salvador Communal Bank, which is located in the District of Capachica, Province and Department of Puno. She is 63 years old, widowed, and has four children. Clementina completed her higher education.


She has been working with Manuela Ramos for ten years. The first loan she requested was in the amount of 300 PEN, which she used to buy more products for her pharmacy business. Clementina currently has several businesses which include selling appliances and toys of all kinds, as well as fattening cattle.


Now she is requesting a loan for 3000 PEN, which will allow her to increase her business capital. Her dream is to return to her original business of operating a pharmacy. What she enjoys most about her Communal Bank are the exchange of ideas, the conversations, and the ability to joke around.
