Jacinta Ofelia's story

Jacinta is a member of the 'Mujeres con Futuro' community bank which is located in Calleria district, in Ucayali department. She is 60 years old, married, and has three grown-up children.

Jacinta has been working with loans from Manuela Ramos for 15 years and they have been a great help to her because she now has rooms which she is able to rent out and this is making her good monthly income.

Jacinta will use her new loan for 1,000 soles to buy: 5 bags of cement, 1 meter of gravel, 1 meter of sand, 100 wooden planks and a wooden door.

Jacinta uses the profits that she makes in her business to cover her costs and continue making repairs to her house so that her rooms are in good condition and she is able to rent them out. She is very grateful for the loans she has received from Manuela Ramos.
