Keyla's story

Keyla belongs to the Community Bank 'Las Flores del Nuevo Eden', located in Jr Francisco del Aguila Mz D Lt 1 AAHH Nuevo Eden, in the district of Yarinacocha, province of Coronel Portillo, in the department of Ucayali. She is 29 years old and she has 2 young kids who depend on her. She is married and her husband is a woodsman. With the first loan that she received from Manuela Ramos of 300 soles, she decided to invest in selling fish. She has worked with the community bank for 4 years.


She currently sells wood and needs support from her husband. This business gives her earnings which allow her to repay her loan on time.


With this loan of 2500 soles, which she will repay over a period of 4 months, she will buy 3 barrels of fuel, she will fix up her boat which is what she works with etc.


Keyla is happy as she has managed to improve her business and her family's economic stability.
