Justa Marcelina's story

Justa is a member of the “Dulce Amanecer” ["Sweet Dawn"] communal bank, located in the district of Puno, in the province and department of Puno. She is 66 years old and married, with 6 children who are all independent. Justa was only able to attend elementary school and did not finish it.

She has been working with the Manuela Ramos Movement organization for five years. Her first loan was for 300 Peruvian new soles, and she used this money for her business, a general store. She receives help from her husband, who helps her serve her customers.

With this new loan for 800 Peruvian new soles, she will use the funds to buy a sack of rice, sugar, cooking oil, 40 multi-packs of bathroom tissue, etc. Her dream is to keep improving her business and increase her income. Some things she likes about her communal bank are the meetings, the savings, and the earnings.
