A loan of $1,100 helped to stock merchandise and cell phone cards.

Yolanda's story

Yolanda belongs to the Los Eucaliptos Communal Bank, in the Tarapoto District of the Province and Department of San Martín. She lives with her partner, is 48 years old, and has one 17 year old daughter, who studies Business Administration at the advanced level.

For the past 21 years she has been very keen with business. Initially she sold cosmetics, which was not profitable given that her clients wouldn't pay off their purchases on time. She began her small groceries and basic necessities business with S/300.00 and has now expanded her business to offer cell phone card reloads and phone cards. She increased her stock and merchandise, attracting very good customers very quickly because of her carisma and good customer service.

With this loan of S/3000.00, she will purchase and stock products for her business such as: soap, milk cartons, sacks of sugar and rice, noodle packets, and egg cartons as well as personal hygiene and cleaning products, packs of sodas, phone cards, and more.

Yolanda is a very enterprising woman and her dream is to have a Mini Market that would allow her to realize greater profits. She is very grateful to the Movimiento Manuela Ramos for helping women like her to see their dreams come true.
