Maria Magdalena's story

Maria Magdalena was born in the city of Calca but she lives in the city of Salvación. (The city of Salvación is located in the district and province of Manu, in the department of Madre de Dios, Peru).

Maria Magdalena is 50 years old and married. She is a hard-working and enterprising mother who helps her family to get ahead. She makes and sells wooden items. She takes her products to sell in the city of Cusco. She has been in this business for several years now and it is going very well thanks to the effort she puts into her work. She belongs to the communal bank “Las Palmeras del Manu” and she needs the loan so she can purchase wood. She is grateful for the loan and she promises to make her monthly repayments.
