A loan of $300 helped to buy seats for her car.


Adela's story

Adela is a member of the “Medallitas de Oro II” community bank which is located in Puno district, in Puno province and department. She is 28 years old, lives with her partner, and has two children. She studied at high school. Adela has been working with Movimiento Manuela R. for two loan cycles. Her first loan was for 300 soles and she invested that money in her car (she provides a transport service). Adela is now requesting a new loan for 800 soles which she will use to buy seats for her car. She works together with her husband. Adela's dream is to own a transport company with many vehicles. This would make her a lot more income. What Adela likes about her community bank is the punctuality, the responsibility and the talks.
