Sarait's story

Ms. Sarait is a member of the "Shipibas" communal bank in the district of Calleria, department of Ucayali. She is 37 years old, married, and has one young daughter.

She has a business that she runs out of her own house. She sells clothing, shoes, and accessories for women. She has been working with Manuela Ramos loans for two years.

With her new loan of 2,500 nuevos soles, she will buy six blouses, nine pairs of shoes, five wallets, six pairs of pants, six pairs of shorts, and one mannequin.

She is in the process of formalizing her business. She used to just sell to her friends, but now she has her own storefront and hopes to have all of the papers to open her location soon. She only hopes that it will go well and that Manuela Ramos will continue offering her loans so that she can further develop her business.
