Pilar's story

Mrs. Pilar is a member of the Nuevo Horizonte communal bank, in the Calleria District, Ucayali Department. She is 29 and single.
She has belonged to the Manuela Ramos family for three years. Her business is selling plastic products. Because she is single, she devotes all of her time to the business. On days when she travels to purchase more merchandise, she leaves her store with a person whom she trusts entirely.
With her new loan of 2,000.00 nuevos soles, she will purchase: 10 large tubs, 50 ten-litre buckets, 50 little trays, 100 medium-sized plastic containers, 50 four-litre pitchers, 25 sugar bowls, 25 medium trays, 50 round plastic containers, and 50 water bottles.
She makes her purchases wholesale. She thanks Manuela Ramos for the ease with which she was able to join the bank and get her first loan to increase her small amount of working capital.
