Marilu's story

Marliu continues living in the city of Gamitana and working with her business of buying and selling lumber. She is a responsible and friendly person. She gets ahead in life and her complementary economic activity is helping her husband make wooden furniture such as, for example, tables, chairs, armoires, and desks. At this time they need a loan to buy materials for their work, such as wood, carpenter’s glue, sand paper, and other things. Marilu continues participating in the “Nuevo Amanecer de Gamitana” communal bank. Marilu was born in the community of Gamitana. (This town is located in the district of Las Piedras, in the province of Tambopata, in the department of Madre de Dios, Peru.)
