Greta Doris's story

Greta belongs to the Indoamerica Community Bank, located in Jr. Fiscarral #246, Calleria district, Ucayali department. Greta is 69 years old and mother to six children. With the first loan that she received from Manuela Ramos of S. 300, she decided to invest in the manufacture of mosquito nets and blankets.

Currently, Greta continues to make mosquito nets and blankets. She also rents out living spaces and, at night, sells regional cuisine and sodas.

With the loan of S. 1,000, which will be repaid in four months, she will invest in the purchase of 20 meters of fabric and ingredients so that she can prepare the food that she sells at night.

Greta is happy to be able to belong to a community bank since, thanks to it, her business is able to continue to grow.
