Dorcas's story

Sra.. Dorcas is a member of Las Pomarrosas Community Bank of the Coronel Portillo district, in Ucayali department. She is 45 years old, married, and has a daughter. Dorcas has had five loans with Manuela Ramos. Her grocery business is located in the local market, and every day she has to put her products in a warehouse as she doesn't have a safe place to keep them overnight.

With this new loan of S/. 2,000.00 she will buy 2 bags of rice, 2 boxes of oil, 2 boxes of milk, 2 bags of sugar, 4 packets of noodles, 10 boxes of eggs, 25 kilos of flour, and one box of jam.

Dorcas works from early in the morning until the evening; this is her routine even on Sundays. Her husband helps her with the business. She is very grateful for the loans she's received up to now and invests all of them in her business.
