Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth belongs to the communal bank “Las Solteritas” (“The Single Women”) located at #754 Salaverry Street in the Callería district, Colonel Portillo province, Ucayali. She is 39 years old and the single mother of a young son who still depends on her. With the first loan of 300.00 soles that she received from Manuela Ramos she decided to invest in the sale of groceries. She has been working with the communal bank for four years.

Currently, she has a store in her house. She dedicates herself to caring for her small son and to administering her business.

With this loan of 3,000.00 soles, to be repaid in five months, she will purchase a sack of rice, a sack of sugar, two boxes of milk, 4 packets of sodas, a variety of candy, detergents, etc.

Elizabeth feels content because her business has grown and because she will have the opportunity to educate her child so he will have a better future.
