A loan of $1,075 helped increase the capital in her business.


Hilaria's story

Hilaria is a member of the community bank "Brisas D. Rio Blanco", located in the district of Pilcuyo in the province in El Collao in the department of Puno. She is 53 years old, married, and has three children. She did not finish primary school.

She began working with the Movimiento Manuela Ramos seven years ago. Her first loan was for 500 nuevos soles, which she used to purchase livestock to raise and sell. She currently sells cheese, meat, potatoes, and quinoa. These products are brought from the capital of Tacna.

She is asking for a new loan for 3000 nuevos soles to increase the capital in her business.

Her dream is to continue improving her business and see her children become professionals. The thing she likes best about the community bank is working together.
