Virginia has worked with the Manuela Ramos Movement for six years. She relates that her first loan was for 300 new soles that she used to increase capital in her business raising cattle and trout.

She is asking for a new, 300 new sol, loan to buy fifteen sacks of feed for the trout (Purina and Naltech). Her children and her husband help her in the business. Her dream for the future is to have more cages for the trout and to be a great businesswoman.
