A loan of $75 helped to buy four slaughtered sheep.


Prima Isabel's story

Prima Isabel is a member of Community Bank “Santa Rosa de San José”, located in the Mañazo disrict in the province of Puno. She is 40 years old, lives with her partner and has 5 children. She finished high school.

Prima Isabel buys and sells meat, like lamb and alpaca. She had worked with the Movimiento Manuela Ramos for three loan cycles. The first time she requested a loan, the solicited amount was 500 new soles and she invested the money in her business. With this new loan of 200 new soles, she will buy 4 slaughtered sheep. She sells them by herself in the Mañazo market. Her husband works in a mine.

Her dream is to have fixed capital, and to continue with her business in order to increase her income. What the Community Bank likes about her are her responsibility and punctuality.
