Hipolinaria's story

Hipolinaria is a member of the “Brisas D. Rio Blanco” community bank which is located in Pilcuyo district, El Collao province, in the department of Puno. She is 56 years old, married and has six children. She completed the first year of her secondary education.

Hipolinaria has been working with Movimiento Manuela Ramos for three years. Her first loan was for 500 nuevos soles which she used to increase the working capital of her business which, back then, was buying and selling sheep. She currently works selling groceries in Tacna region.

She is requesting a new loan for 3,000 nuevos soles which will allow her to increase her business capital.

Her dream is to make progress and succeed in her business. What she most likes about her community bank are the talks.
