Yolanda's story

Yolanda is a member of the “12 de Agosto” (August 12th) communal bank in Puno district, Puno province of Puno department. She is 42, in a common law marriage, and she has 2 children who are in school.

She has worked for the last 3 years with the Movimiento Manuela Ramos. Her first loan was for 500 new sols. She used it to increase her capital for a personal training office for adults. She has a law office and she has different projects like the Institution of Road and Traffic Safety, and to set up a CEBA school in Ilave.

She will use the new loan of 3000 new sols for radio ads, and flyers to put around the Juli, Ilave district so that the adults in the community can participate in the services that she offers.

Her goal is to help the school and the Institute develop.

What she most likes about the communal bank is the punctuality and responsibility of its members.
