Giovani's story

Giovani is a member of the communal bank "Las Lomas de Yarina," in the Yarinacocha district of the department of Ucayali. She is 35 years old, married, and has 2 minor children.

She has been taking loans from the Manuela Ramos organization for 7 years, and these have been granted to her for the purpose of growing her wood business.

With this new loan of 3,000 Peruvian soles, she will buy: 500 feet of cedar wood, 700 feet of shihuahuaco wood, 900 feet of capirona wood, and 300 feet of mahogany wood.

In order to maintain her business, she has had to work a lot. She needed to apply new strategies to give her good results and allow her to continue to grow the business in which she works with her husband.

Thanks to the loans granted by the Manuela Ramos organization so that she can continue with her business, her family is ensuring the future of her children.
