A loan of $775 helped to buy supplies like dry seeds.


Rocio's story

Rocío was born in the city of Salvación and still lives there. (The city of Salvación is located in Manu District in Manu Province within Madre de Dios Department, Peru).

Rocío, 36, is in a common law relationship and has a son. Her main economic activity is crafts making. She has a small workshop at home where she makes and sells them. She’s been in this business for three years now and does very well thanks to the effort she puts into her work. She’s an enterprising, hardworking woman who moves her family forward because she belongs to the “Del Futuro del Manu” (Manu’s Future) communal bank.

On this occasion, she needs the loan to buy work supplies like dry seeds, for example, to manufacture necklaces and bracelets. She is grateful for and values the loan and commits to make her monthly installment payments.
