A loan of $400 helped to get more sheep to fatten and sell.

Isabel's story

Isabel is a member of the community bank Urbano Central. It is in the Copani district, in the Yunguyo province, in the Puno zone. She is 46 years old; is married; and has 4 children. She has worked with the Manuela Ramos Movement for 5 years. She gathers sheep and fattens them to sell at the fairs in Zepita. Her first loan was for 300.00 PEN which she used to buy sheep to fatten. Now she needs a loan for an additional 1200.00 PEN which she promises to pay back in 4 payments. With the money she will be able to get more sheep, fatten them quickly, and sell them at the livestock fairs in Zepita. They pay well there. Her goal is to help her children becomes professionals. Right now they do not have the necessary support.
