Aleydith's story

Aleydith belongs to the Mujeres de la Colina II communal bank, in the district of La Banda de Shilcayo, province and department of San Martín. She is 34 years old and married, and has three children, ages 13, 7, and 2. The first two are in high school and elementary school, respectively.

Three years ago, upon seeing the need to help her husband financially, she decided to launch a business selling clothes and beauty products by catalog, selling as a street vendor from her house. The first loan from the communal bank was to increase her merchandise and the following ones were to buy display cases to show her products. In this way set up her space that she has been renting for eight months in a shopping center in the city center. Here she currently sells perfume, clothing, shoes, costume jewelry, and other items to satisfy the customers who frequent this shopping center.

With this loan of 3000 PEN she will buy children's clothing, shoes, and toys for the Christmas season and to continue setting up her space with new ideas.

Aleydith is a hard-working and enterprising woman. Her dream is to have a shoe store where she can offer good-quality shoes and exclusive designs. She is very grateful to the Manuela Ramos movement for giving her the opportunity to continue growing economically to be able to make her dreams come true.
