Elisa's story

Elisa is a member of the Las Tigresas community bank of the district of Calleria, department of Ucayali. She is 38 years old and has two children. She has been working with loans from Manuela Ramos for 10 years, and she sells Herbalife products. With her new loan of S/. 3,000.00 she will buy: 6 nutritional drinks in different flavors, 2 multivitamins, 2 tea concentrates,1 protein, 2 powdered aloe drinks, 2 instant teas, and two 2 invigorators.

She has a smoothie club that she operates from her house. Every morning she makes the smoothies to offer to people who want to lose weight. She herself is one of the people who is on this nutritional diet. It can be said that she is an innovator with this service since these products aren't very marketable due to their cost. They are very expensive products but they are having an effect after a short time. In this way more people are deciding to drink the smoothies. She is thankful to Manuela Ramos for the loans it has given her so far that have allowed her to continue working.
