Maritza Yovana's story

Señora Maritza is a member of the communal bank, "Mujeres de Villa del Lago II" in the district, province, and department of Puno. She is 30, lives with her boyfriend, and has 2 young children who are her dependents. With her first loan of 500 nuevos soles, she purchased soft drinks to sell wholesale. She has worked with the communal bank for almost a year, and she tells us that she has increased the amount of products that she buys from distributors with cash. With this first loan of 1,300 nuevos soles, which will be repaid in 4 months, she will buy a larger quantity of soft drinks to keep distributing as a wholesaler. Maritza hopes to keep working to support her children so they will become professionals.
