A loan of $300 helped to buy pots and a grinder.

Rosa's story

Rosa is 43 and a member of the communal bank "Mujeres Valerosas II" from the Tarapoto District in the department of San Martín. She is married and has three children. Her partner helps prepare the food she sells as a food vendor at night.

She has been in business for 13 years, selling "juanes", "humitas", baked fish and many regional dishes. She has been working with Manuela Ramos for five years.

The new loan in the amount of 800 PEN will be used to by pots and a grinder. Her goal is for her children to become professionals since, as she says, that is her main reason for working.

What she likes most about Manuela Ramos is the opportunity to receive low-interest loans.
