A loan of $925 helped purchase of bulls.


Norma Alicia's story

Alicia is a member of the Las Brisas del Rio Blanco (The White River Breezes) community bank in the town of Chipana, in Pilcuyo district, El Collao province and Puno Department. Alicia is 33 years old, and is married with three children. She completed high school and for the past four years has worked with the Movimiento Manuela Ramos, a women's advocacy organization, buying and selling corn. Alicia invested her first loan of 300 nuevos soles in the purchase of corn, but this loan of 3000 nuevos soles, an amount which she has promised to repay punctually in five months' time, is destined for the purchase of bulls. Alicia will fatten them and sell them at the Pilcuyo market. The profit will make it possible for her to build a house in Chipana for her children.
