Georgina's story

Georgina is a member of the “Las Kantutitas de Camicachi II” community bank which is located in Ilave district, in El Collao province, in Puno department. She is 37 years old, married, and has two children. She has a high school education.

This lady is a new member who has recently joined Movimiento Manuela Ramos. Her first loan is for 1,000 Peruvian soles and she will invest the money in setting up her grocery store. She will buy rice, sugar, noodles, oils, etc. She also tells us that she works on the farm together with her husband who works for the town of Ilave.

Georgina's dream is to fill her store with a variety of products and to own a good home. What she likes about her community bank is the ease of making loan repayments.
