Orfelina De Jesus's story

Mrs. Orfelina de Jesus is a member of the Mujeres Creativas (Creative Women) Village Bank and lives in the city of Moyabamba in San Martin, Peru. She sells vegetables from her store located in the city's central market where her customers seek her out daily.

With this $425 loan which she will repay in 6 months, she will purchase vegetables such as potatoes, onions, tomatoes, chilis, cilantro, Chinese onions, garlic, and beans to stock her business and assure her of future sales.

Orfelina is 62 years old and the mother of 6 adult children. She lives with one of her daughters who accompanies her and helps her when she has free time. She is grateful for the help she will receive from Manuela Ramos which will help her to grow not only her business, but the businesses of the other women in her lending group.
