Estela Angelica's story

Estela is a member of the “Cinnamon Flower” Communal Bank, located in the district and department of Puno. She is 49 years old, married and has 4 children. Estela has some college education but she didn’t graduate.

Estela works in transportation local or long-distance. She also provides video games and play station games for her customers. Estela has worked with the Movimiento Manuela Ramos for some 6 years. Her initial loan was of S/ 300.00 nuevo soles and was used for her business.

With the new loan of S/ 2500.00 nuevo soles, Estela will buy some play stations, so that her business has more customers. She works with her husband in her transportation business.

Estela’s dream is to have an internet café business that would complement her other business and to improve her earnings.

What Estela enjoys about her Communal Bank is the ease of acquiring the loan, the low interest rates and the solidarity between the members.
