Consuelo's story

Consuelo is a member of the “Azangarinas Valientes” community bank which is located in Azángaro district, in Azángaro province, in the department of Puno. She is 61 years old, married and has 6 children (2 of whom are still dependent on her). She didn't complete her primary education. She has been working with Movimiento Manuela Ramos for 2 years. Her first loan was for 500 nuevos soles which she used to increase the working capital of her business selling 'chifleria' (natural remedies). She is requesting a new loan for 2,000 nuevos soles to invest in buying merchandise such as creams, choline supplements and brushes for her business. Her dream for the future is to improve her business. What she most likes about her community bank are the meetings and the punctuality.
