Antonieta's story

Antonieta belongs to the Communal Bank “Las Brisas” and lives on Jr. Mariscal Cacere N 116 in the district and province of Bellavista. She is 46 years old, and the mother three children. One is older, but she still cares for two of them, and lives with her parnter. Antonieta used her first loan of 300 new soles to invest in the sale of homemade food, which she has done for 8 years through the bank.

She has a little house where she sells her meals with the help of her partner. This business allows her to maintain a daily income with which she uses to pay back her loan payments.

With this loan of 1,000 new soles, which she will repay in 6 months, she will buy rice, sugar, milk, jars, ect. to be able to make the daily specials and attend to her clients who are very demanding. In addition to that she will buy materials to improve her home which is also her restaurant.

Antonieta is very happy about everything she has achieved with the help of the Manuela Ramos Movement.
