A loan of $825 helped to buy beauty products.

Elizabeth Esther's story

Mrs. Elizabeth Esther is a member of the communal bank "Las Tesoritas" in the district of Yarinacocha, in the department of Ucayali. She is 40, married and has three children.

She has been working with Manuela Ramos for two years and sells beauty products by catalogue. She has two children still in her care and for whom she covers education expenses. Her husband is a master builder. Both of them have to work in order to cover household expenses.

The new loan in the amount of 2,200 PEN will be used to buy beauty products that she ordered on credit. The other part of the loan will be used to buy inventory.

She hasn't been working long but already has a small amount of capital which she wants to increase little by little. Everything she currently has is thanks to her efforts and the opportunity given to her by Manuela Ramos.
