She has been working with the Manuela Ramos loans for 10 years and she makes ladies garments. She is currently convalescing after suffering a bad cold caused by the change in climate.

With her new loan of 2,500.00 nuevos soles (PEN) she is going to buy: a large table to be able to work with her fabrics, 10 metres of fabric, 15 kilos of cotton, half a dozen zippers, 6 units of thread, 1 hundred-pack of buttons and 2 packages of needles.

Her work takes time away from her housework which is why she has someone to take care of the household chores. In this way she can work in peace. She is grateful to Manuela Ramos for the help and confidence shown her.
