Susana's story

Mrs. Susana is a member of the community bank "Mujeres de Exito" (Successful Women) of the Coronel Portillo district, department of Ucayali. She is 50 years old, single and has one son. She has joined this bank two years ago and they once again took her in because she is a very punctual member. With the new loan of 1000 new soles she will buy materials that she needs to be able to work; 5 kilos of cotton cloth, 2 spools of elastic, 3 colors of ribbon, 10 meters of yarn, 6 meters of lace, one dozen buttons, a dozen zippers. She works so that her son has all that he needs and can study. She is thankful to Manuela Ramos for giving her the opportunity to belong to this community bank. She tells us that the members are like family and get along very well.
