Olga Luz's story

Olga is a member of the community bank named "Las Almendras". It is located in the district of Calleria in Ucayali. She is 34 years old, she is married and she has 3 children. Olga started her clothing business with the first loan of 300 soles from Manuela Ramos (Kiva Field Partner). She has been accessing loans from Manuela Ramos for the past 3 years and her business has been growing. The sales she makes are completed almost entirely on credit or in various arrangements for the client base she has is very good. This loan of 3000 soles will be used to purchase merchandise in Lima: 5 comforters, 10 bed sheet sets, 20 shirts, 15 slacks, 25 polo shirts, 7 dresses, 15 blouses, 10 pairs of shorts, 10 short skirts, 10 tank tops, and 3 packages of tights. Olga contributes towards the household expenses with her husband. He doesn't earn very much money working as a construction worker, and there are days that he does not have work. She is very happy to have the family that she has and she is very grateful to Manuela Ramos for the loans that she has been able to access.
