Elsa's story

Elsa T. C. belongs to the Rising Sun (“Sol Naciente”) Community Bank located in Jr. Guillermo Sisley N° 735 in the district of Callería. Mrs. Elsa is 54 years old, has 5 children, and her husband is a doctor. The first loan that she received from Manuela Ramos was for 300 soles. She opened a snack bar and sold food à la carte, juice, soda, beer, and ceviche. The clients were clamoring for her products, so the snack bar grew. With this loan for 1000 soles, she will grow her business by buying more products, like rice, sugar, oil and will fix her roof. She is thankful to Manuela Ramos for her success, as she now takes orders because her seasoning is unique and because of the support that it offers her.
