Flavia's story

Flavia is a member of the Communal Bank “Las Mensajeras” (The Messengers), which is located in the District of Juliaca, San Román Province, Department of Puno. She is 36 years old, in a common law marriage, and has five children. Flavia completed her high school education.

She has been working with Manuela Ramos for three years. Her first loan was for 300 PEN, which helped increase her business capital for selling food and secondhand bicycles.

Now she is requesting a new loan in the amount of 1000 PEN to invest in the purchase of supplies for her food business as well as merchandise for her other business of selling secondhand bicycles.

Flavia dreams of having a house and improving her business in the future. What she likes most about her Communal Bank are the discussions and the training seminars.
