Daria's story

Daría C. D. G. is a member of the “Unión 28 D. Julio” Communal Bank in the district of Yunguyo, in the province of Yunguyo, in the Puno area. She is 48-years-old, married and has 5 children. She completed her elementary school studies up to the third graD.. She has worked with Movimiento Manuela Ramos for 8 years. She works with metal handicrafts. Her first loan was for 300 nuevos soles, a sum that she invested in the purchase of materials to make her products (miniature cars) for the traditional fairs of the area. She is requesting a loan of 2800 nuevos soles, the same amount that she has agreed to repay in 3 monthly installments. She will invest this money in the purchase of a large amount of materials (tin, metals, pewter, polish, etc.) in order to continue working on her products, since the "Alasitas" fair is coming up and her products will be in high demand. Her wish is to buy a house for herself in the city of Tacna as well as a car to be able to carry her products to the various fairs and traditional fiestas.
