Las Luchadoras De Masisea Group's story

Neida is a member and the leader of the communal bank "Las Luchadoras de Masisea" ("The Fighters from Masisea"). She's 43 years old and married. She has six children, only two of whom are under her care. She sells foodstuffs, and with her new loan of 700 nuevos soles she will purchase a sack of rice, a box of olive oil, a box of milk, three sacks of salt, a sack of sugar, a packet of olive oil, a packet of flour. That way she'll be ensuring her repayments to Manuela Ramos. This group is comprised of 22 members who request loans in order to buy more merchandise for their businesses, such as Elida, with her new loan of 500 nuevos soles; Maruja, 600 nuevos soles; Earine, 400 nuevos soles; Lucero, 500 nuevos soles; Josefa, 500 nuevos soles; Reyna, 500 nuevos soles; Jeny, 600 nuevos soles; Eroditha, 500 nuevos soles; Luz 500 nuevos soles; Danny, 1000 nuevos soles; Teófila, 300 nuevos soles; Carmen, 800 nuevos soles; Margarita, 500 nuevos soles; Juana, 1000 nuevos soles; María Justina, 600 nuevos soles; María Salome, 500 nuevos soles; María Elsa, 400 nuevos soles; Cinthia, 500 nuevos soles; Yrene, 800 nuevos soles; Noly, 500 nuevos soles; Ercilia, 800 nuevos soles.
Almost all of them travel into town for collecting their loans, and they take that opportunity to purchase their merchandise. They're very thankful to Manuela Ramos, because thanks to the loans they get the capital they so needed. They need it in order to keep on working and getting an income of their own, so that their children get a good education and become good people.
