Inocencia's story

Inocencia is a member of the Communal Bank "Mujeres De Éxito (Successful Women)" in the Calleria District, Department of Ucayali. She is 57 years old, married and has three adult children.

Inocencia has been working for thirteen years with the loans from Manuela Ramos selling food. She rents a small place which is very popular because it is near a plaza. She sells in the afternoons.

With her new loan of S /. 3,000.00 soles she will buy: dozens of small plates, 100 disposable plates, a bucket of mayonnaise, a bucket of ketchup and and a bucket of mustard, 2 packets of plastic bags, 5 kilos of pork, 2 gallons of oil, 1 bunch of bananas, 10 kilos of potatoes, and 1 gallon of gas.

Every day Inocencia has to go to work to afford the medicines for her husband who is ill and has to be attended to. When she has to go to work someone needs to take care of him. She thanks Manuela Ramos for giving all the help necessary to continue working.
