A loan of $500 helped to buy fish.

Lucia's story

Señora Lucia belongs to the Communal Bank called "The flowers of the Illustrious" located in the district of Manantay in the city of Coronel Portillo in the state of Ucayalli. She's 39 years old. She's the mother of a little girl who still depends on her financially. She's married and her husband works for the city of Coronel Portillo. With the first loan she obtained from Manuela Ramos, she decided to invest it in selling fish. She has been a client for over 6 years.

She continues to sell fish. She gets up around 4 in the morning to go to the port to buy the fish which she later sells.

She has the support of her sister-in-law named Maruja. With this loan, which she will repay within 4 months, she will purchase 4 trays of daily fish.

Lucia thanks God for life and good health and to Manuela Ramos for trusting her.
