Esther Roman's story

Esther is a member of the community bank "Azangarinas Valientes", located in the Azángaro district in the province of Azángaro and department of Puno. She is 43 years old, married, and has six children. She finished her schooling after elementary school. She has been working with the Movimiento Manuela Ramos for two years. Her first loan was for 500 nuevos soles, which she used to increase the capital in her business that sells meat. She is asking for a new loan of 800 nuevos soles to purchase sheep to raise and sell. Her dream is to have more capital to improve her business. The things she likes best about her community bank are the lectures and sporting events.
