Julia Nelsa's story

Julia Nelsa R. G. is 45 years old and is a member of the communal bank "Mujeres Trabajadoras". She lives in the Bella Vista de Milan sector of the Otuzco province in the department of La Libertad, Peru.
Julia finished second grade but could not continue beyond that because her family couldn't afford the expenses. She married at 18 and has 6 children three of whom are still dependent on her.
Julia has three main economic activities because she says that she has to sell according to the season. She is involved in the sale of grown animals, grains, and even clothing and footwear.
Her first loan for the purchase of grains was for 300 soles which she repaid in 4 installments. With this 2000 sol loan, which she will repay in 4 installments, she will purchase more livestock and some grains.
