Feliza's story

Feliza is a member of the San Salvador Communal Bank, which is located in the District of Capachica, Province and Department of Puno. She is 50 years old, widowed, and has five children. Feliza did not finish her elementary school education.

She has been working with Manuela Ramos for seven years. The first loan she requested was for 300 PEN, which she used for buying and selling sheep.

Now she is requesting a new loan in the amount of 1300 PEN to increase her business capital. Her dream is to open a restaurant. What she likes most about her Communal Bank is the punctuality.
