A loan of $375 helped purchase alpaca wool for knitting ponchos & baby booties.


Constantina Maria's story

Constantina is a member of the Communal Bank “Punta Sahuacasi”, which is located in the District and Province of Azángaro, Department of Puno. She is 47 years old, married, and has two children. Constantina has a fifth grade education.


She has been working with Manuela Ramos for three years. Her first loan of 300 PEN was used to increase her business capital for selling cheese, milk, and handicrafts.


Sra. Constantina is requesting a new loan in the amount of 1000 PEN so that she can buy alpaca wool for making ponchos and baby booties. Her dreams for the future are to have more capital and become a crafts wholesaler. What she enjoys most about her Communal Bank are the meetings, the promptness, and the responsibility.
