Cesia's story

Señorita Cesia is a member of the community bank Mujeres Solidarias (Women United) in the Calleria district in the department of Ucayali. She is 20 years old and has a small grocery store. She recently marked her one-year anniversary of working with loans from Manuela Ramos.

Señorita Cesia will invest her new loan of 1000 PEN in the purchase of products for her store, such as 1/2 box of milk, 1 box of crackers, 4 strips of cheese snacks, 1 bag of animal crackers, 25 kilos of sugar, 3 bags of candy, 1 package of bottled water, 1 package of guarana (a local fruit drink), 25 kilos of rice, and 1/2 box of half-liter bottles of oil.

Señorita Cesia makes good use of her youth and has all the will to continue working. She has great faith that her business is going to increase little by little.

Thanks to Manuela Ramos, she was able to begin working, because they gave her a little capital to begin the business that she had an idea for.
