A loan of $600 helped buy Avon beauty products, 100 chickens and 80 crates of soda.


Lidia Cledy's story

Señora Lidia belongs to the Las Brisas ("The Breezes") Communal Bank, located at Jr. Cesar Vallejo Mz:L Lt.17 in the Yarinacocha District of the Ucayali Department. She is 52 years old, married and the mother of one son. Her husband is a retired teacher, and their son is still a dependent. With her first loan from ManueL. Ramos of 300 soles (about US $100), she decided to buy AVON beauty products. She has been working with ManueL. Ramos for eight years.

Lidia still sells AVON products, and has also started to buy chickens and soda in bulk to sell and send to the Alto Ucayali River area.

With this loan of 1,800 soles (US $600), which she will repay in four months, Lidia will buy more AVON products, 100 chickens and 80 crates of soda.

Lidia says that she receives unconditional support from ManueL. Ramos, and is grateful to the communal bank for the help they have given her and the trust they have placed in her.
