Charito's story

Charito is a member of the 'Las Margaritas' community bank which is located in Coronel Portillo district, in Ucayali department. She is 37 years old, married, and has one son.

Charito's business is selling food. She has premises in the city center where she carries out her work from very early in the morning. She does her shopping in the afternoon so that she has everything ready.

Charito will use her new loan for 1,000 soles to buy cooking utensils. She will buy 1 skimmer, 2 ladles, 3 knives, 3 bowls, 2 colanders, 1 large fork, a set of sieves, tablecloths and salt shakers.

Charito is trying to improve her business premises. She still needs some things but she will take care of that later. For now, she is committed to providing her customers with a good service so that they feel happy. She is grateful to Manuela Ramos for giving her financial support and also for the educational talks that the loan officers give.
