A loan of $375 helped purchase materials, such as wood, for her business.


Beatriz's story

Beatriz was born in the city of Atalaya and is 48 years old. She currently lives with her spouse and their six children in the beautiful town of Pilcopata, and they are very happy. She drives her family forward with a great deal of hard work and dedication. Her primary work is helping in her husbands carpentry shop with the finishing of furniture. She has been doing this for a number of years and it goes very well thanks to the determination she puts into her work.

She belongs to the communal bank "Kusacha de Pilcopata," and her moment of opportunity requires a loan, which she will use to purchase materials for the shop, such as wood. She is grateful for and values the loan highly, and she promises to responsibly repay the monthly agreements.

(The town of Pilcopata is noted for the sale of products from the jungle, as well as lodging and restaurant services. It is the main point of entry to Manu National Park.)
