Geronima's story

Geronima is a member of the Communal Bank “Las Amigas” (Friends) which is in the District, Province, and Department of Puno. She is 75 years old, separated from her spouse, and has three independent children. Geronima was not able to finish elementary school.

She has worked with Manuela Ramos for five years. Her first loan was in the amount of 100 PEN and the money was invested in her business of buying and selling sheep.

Geronima is requesting a new loan in the amount of 500 PEN. The money will be invested in the purchase of three animals. Sra. Geronima will fatten the animals for three months and then sell them immediately. Her grandchildren help with the business.

Sra. Geronima wants to continue with her business and improve her earnings. What she likes about her Communal Bank is the convenience of the loan.
