A loan of $1,000 helped buys sacks of palm fruit, pijuayos, flour to prepare biscochuelos (honey bread) and peanuts.

Consuelo's story

Consuela, a member of the "Mujeres Emprendedoras" Communal Bank, lives in the San Martin region, in the province and district of Moyobamba. She is 42 years old and the mother of 4 children, who are all adults. She sells fruit such as palm fruit and pijuayo as well as regional sweets. She has her business outside one of the busiest pharmacies in the city.

With this loan for S/. 3,000, which will be repaid in 6 months, she will buy sacks of palm fruit, pijuayos, flour for preparing biscocheulos (honey bread) and peanuts for preparing sweets, which she will sell at retail. She will also buy materials for building some rooms onto her house which she will rent out.

Consuelo is a hard-working woman who is grateful to Manuela Ramos for giving her a loan to help her grow her business. In the future she would like to fix up her house so she can set up her business there.
