A loan of $50 helped to buy clothing.


Victoria's story

Victoria is a member of the "Las Collabinas" communal bank which is located in the province of El Collao in the department of Puno. She is 29 years old, single and has a high school education.

She invested her first 300 PEN loan in her children's clothing business. She has been working with the Manuela Ramos Movement for a year now.

She plans to use the new 100 PEN loan to buy more clothing. Her dream is to grow her business and have her own clothing store one day.

She likes the communal bank because it is punctual and dependable and helps her earn more with her savings.
