A loan of $200 helped to buy a bolt of fabric and thread.

Evelyny Karol's story

Evelyny is a member of the “Las Mensajeras” communal bank located in Juliaca District, San Román Province and Puno Department. She’s 29 years old, single and has no children. She completed secondary education.

She’s been working with the Manuela Ramos Movement for two months. Her first loan was for 500 new soles that she used to increase capital in her business making polo shirts and sweatshirts.

She will ask for a new loan in the amount of 500 new soles to buy a bolt of fabric and thread for her polo making business; she works in the business with her mother.

Her dream for the future is to have more machines, a house and a car. What she likes best about her communal bank is the ease of loans and the punctuality.
