Maria Filomena's story

Mrs. Maria belongs to the La Lupuna Communal Bank, located on Jr. José Olaya Mz.Ñ Lt.4 AA.HH, Pedro Portillo in the Yarinacocha in Ucayali. She is 59 years old, is the mother of 8 children, who are of legal age, is married, and her husband is retired. With the first loan of 300.00 soles that she received, she decided to invest in the payment of her product “Ebel” (a beauty product).

At present, she continues selling Ebel, making shoes and wallets for women, men, and children. She also sews sheets, small towels, and other garments.

With this loan of 1,700 soles, which will be repaid in 5 months, she will invest in the purchase of 6 kilograms of fabric, 5 pieces of synthetic leather, half a dozen patterns, 5 units of crochet thread, etc.

Maria shows that she receives the support of Manuela Ramos because the business improved and, at the same time, she gives thanks to God for this opportunity.
