Leyly Perlita's story

Leyly is a member of the communal bank "Virgen De La Natividad" in the Manantay district, Ucayali department. She is 25 years old, married, and has one child. She has had three loan cycles from Manuela Ramos and she works selling Universal-brand products, all of which are staples. With her new loan of 1,500 new soles, she will buy two packages of gelatin, two packages of corn pudding, three boxes of soft drinks, and ten sacks of rice.

She works together with her husband, who is in charge of sales, and she is in charge of collecting payments. She combines her work with her studies and she also cares for her daughter. They are happy because their business is growing in a short period of time. They have to thank Manuela Ramos.
