Melita's story

Mrs. Melita is a member of the "Juntas" communal bank in the district of Yarinacocha in the department of Ucayali. She is 49 years old and a single mother of three children.

She has belonged to the communal bank for ten years and she is a seamstress. She has been in this activity for many years, allowing her to educate her children.

With the new 2,000 PEN loan she will buy an overlock sewing machine and 8 bobbins of thread (black and white). She will use the machine to give her products a better finish so she can earn a more income.

Melita is very grateful to Manuela Ramos for the loans. Thanks to her efforts she has been able to educate her children well so they will be successful. She feels satisfied about having done a good job and that her dedication has not been in vain.
