A loan helped to buy coffins.


Mabel Yurema's story

Mabel is a member of the “Uniòn Arco Deustua” communal bank located in Puno District, Puno Province and Department. She is 35 years old, has a spouse and three children. She finished middle school.

She’s worked with the Manuela R. Movement for four years. Her previous, 300 new sol, loan was invested in her business selling coffins (funeral parlor).

Mabel will ask for a new loan in the amount of 1000 new soles, money she’ll use to buy coffins to later sell. She works alone since her husband’s a Civil Engineer and he works developing projects. Her dream is to have more funeral parlors in Juliaca an Ilave.

What she likes about the communal bank are the training sessions and that the members are fun.
