A loan of $725 helped to buy livestock.

Juana's story

Juana is a member of the “Mujeres Triunfadoras” (Triumphant Women) community bank which is located in Cabanilla district, in Lampa province, in the department of Puno. She is 65 years old, widowed and doesn't have any children. She did not receive any schooling.

Juana has been working with Movimiento Manuela R. for 4 years. Her original loan was for 300 nuevos soles which she used to increase the working capital of her business selling livestock.

She is requesting a new loan for 2,000 nuevos soles which she will invest in buying more livestock.

Juana's dream for the future is to improve her livestock and thereby obtain better profits.

What she most likes about her community bank are the savings.
