Leonor's story

Leonor is a member of the community bank "San Salvador", located in the Capachica district in the province of Puno and department of Puno. She is 39 years old, married, and has three children. She was only able to go to primary school, but she didn't finish. Leonor sells crafts and fuel. She has been working with the Movimiento Manuela Ramos for 10 years. Her first loan was for 300 nuevo soles, which she invested in a fishing net. She stopped this activity when she moved. She is asking for a loan of 1000 nuevos soles to invest in the purchase of fuel. Her dream is to continue and grow her business. The thing she likes best about her community bank is the ease of getting a loan.
