Herminia's story

Señora Herminia is a member of the Virgin of Guadelupe Communal Bank, in the Barrio Central, district of Pomata, province of Chucito, Puno Department, Peru. She is 49 years old and is in a civil marriage with three children. She has attended secondary school but has not graduated. She has been a client of Manuela Ramos / CrediMUJER for twelve years while devoting herself to artisanship and the sale of soft drinks. Her first loan was for 300 New Sols which she invested in the purchase of materials such as wool, thread and needles for making her handcrafts. Presently, she is requesting an additional loan of 1,000 New Sols which she intends to repay in 5 monthly installments. With this she intends to acquire beverages, mostly soft drinks of different brands and styles, in order to distribute them to stores in Pomata. She would very much like to have her own artisan's shop in Puno City or in Cuzco so as to be able to offer her handcrafts to tourists and thus obtain more profits. She is working towards this with great diligence.
