Leyli's story

Leyli is a member of the 'Líderes Triunfadoras' community bank which is located in Calleria district, in Ucayali department. She is 44 years old, married, and has two dependent children. Her first loan gave her the will to do what she had always planned to do but didn't have enough capital for.

Leyli is a founding member of her community bank. She has a grocery store in her home. This allows her to look after her home and her children as well.

Leyli will use her new loan for 3,000 Peruvian soles to buy one dozen lots of fruit juice, 1/2 a crate of canned goods, 1 packet of noodles, 1 box of cookies, 1 crate of milk, 1 bag of flour, 1 box of cocoa, 2 strips of Nescafe sachets, 1 sack of sugar, 1 sack of rice and 1 crate of oil.

Through her business, Leyli is able to help with some of her household expenses. Her husband is a master builder and he supports their household. As a result of his work, he sometimes has to disappear for almost the whole day and Leyli has to take care of everything.
