Kadith's story

Sra. Kadith is a member of the Communal Bank “Las Lameñas” which is located in the District and Province of Lamas, Department of San Martín. She is 37 years old, single, and has a son who is of school age.

At the age of 16, Kadith began working in order to help with the household expenses. This has allowed her to be financially independent since that time. The idea of starting a business was her own. She began making ice cream treats and gelatins. Later on, she decided to take out a small loan with Manuela Ramos and used the money as capital for selling groceries from her home. At the moment, she has increased her inventory with new products such as meat, eggs, all types of beverages, grains, and vegetables. She has a good customer base and provides them excellent service and care each day so that they will continue to do business with her.

With this new loan of 3000 PEN, Kadith will buy perfumes, gifts, clothing, and shoes so that she can attract new customers and satisfy her existing customers.

Kadith is a creative and enterprising woman. Her dream is to have a growing business. She is extremely grateful to Manuela Ramos for providing her the opportunity to grow as a micro-entrepreneur.
