Juliana's story

Juliana is a member of the “Brisas D. Rio Blanca” (White River Breezes) Communal Bank. It is located in the Pilcuyo district, El Collao province, Puno department. She is 39 years old, married, and has three children. She was only able to go to school up to the third year of high school. Juliana has been working with the Movimiento Manuela Ramos for six years. The first loan she requested was for 300 soles. She used the loan to increase the capital in her business, which is selling grains in Arequipa. Her dream is to progress and get ahead in her business. What she likes about her communal bank is talking with the other members.
