Melita's story

Melita is a member of the Comunal Bank “La Familia” located at AA. HH Javier Perez D. Cuellar Jr. Nuevo mundo Mz C lt. 1 in the district of Calleria, in the province of Ucayali. She’s a 66 year-old mother of 3 and her husband is a labourer. With the first loan she received from Manuela Ramos, S/300, she decided to invest in a small restaurant.

Melita is very happy with her restaurant as business has started, and thanks to her exceptional service, her clientele is increasing. She also counts on the sale of beverages (soft drinks and refreshments), and to some extent clothing, which she sells in her spare time to friends and acquaintances.

With this loan of S/1,500, which will be fully paid in 4 months, she’ll buy kitchen utensils Like plates, spoons, forks, jugs, etc., and soft drinks.

Melita has an entrepreneurial spirit and has been able to get ahead thanks to her hard work and dedication. She’s grateful that an institution like Manuela Ramos trusted her enough to give her a loan and that with it she was able to start a business.
