Margot's story

Margot is a member of the “Las Fresitas” communal bank in Yarinacocha District in Ucayali Department. She’s 23-years-old, has a spouse and a little boy.

She’s been working with Manuela Ramos loans for four years. She has a tire repair shop where she works alongside her spouse and since she has no one to leave her son with he spends the day with them too. It’s a little bothersome sometimes because he keeps them from being able to work in peace; she has to be watching over him all the time.

She will use her new, 2500 new sol loan, to buy 25 gears, 20 chains, 12 inner tubes, 2 patching irons and one liter of adhesive.

With loans she gets each cycle she can stock her business. She has customers because they are located on a very busy avenue and they are the only tire repair shop in five blocks. She thanks Manuela Ramos for all the support she’s received these last four years.
