Francisca's story

Francisca is a member of the “Punta Sahuacasi” community bank which is located in Azángaro district, Azángaro province, in the department of Puno. She is 48 years old and lives with her partner. She has 3 children (1 dependent). She completed her primary education.

Francisca has been working with Movimiento Manuela Ramos for 2 years. She tells us that her first loan was for 300 nuevos soles which she used to increase the working capital of her business selling brooms and shoe brushes.

She is requesting a new loan for 1,000 nuevos soles which she will invest in buying material for her business such as glue, wire and wood.

Her dream for the future is to expand her workshop. What she most likes about her community bank is the ease of obtaining a loan and being able to chat with other members.
