A loan of $750 helped to purchase eleven animals for slaughter..


Vilma's story

Vilma is a member of the Communal Bank “Central Vaquería” (Central Dairy) which is located in the District of Ilave, El Collao Province, Department of Puno. She is 27 years old, in a common-law relationship, and has one child. Vilma did not complete her higher education.

She has worked with Manuela Ramos for one year. Her first loan was in the amount of 500 PEN and the money was invested in the purchase and sale of small animals, such as sheep and pigs. She also sells handmade articles, but this is not her main business.

With this new loan of 2000 PEN, Vilma will buy eleven animals for slaughter and then sell the meat in the cities of Arequipa and Ilave. She travels every week for her business and receives the support of her husband.

Sra. Vilma wants to have a house in Puno and a car for providing transportation services. What she likes about the Communal Bank are the discussions and the orientation classes that are provided.
