María's story

Señora Maria is a member of the community bank "Las estrellitas Unidas del Titicaca”, in Chipana, district of Pilcuyo, Province of El Collao, Department of Puno. She is 33 years of age, has two children, is a widow, and has a 5th grade education.

She has worked for a year with the Manuela Ramos Movement and raises pigs. Her first loan of S/ 300.00 nuevos soles made her happy becuase it allowed her to buy piglets to fatten and to later sell.

With this loan of S/ 1100.0 nuevos soles ($350), she will buy cattle and calves to be able to fatten and sell them in the livestock fairs in Pilcuyo, Ilave. In this way she will contribute to bettering the quality of her children's education. Also, she commits to punctually pay back her loan in 5 monthly payments.
