Salome
Salome is 29 years old and has three children (Junior, nine; Sharmeli, four; and Joseph, one and a half). Salome tells us that she is both mother and father to her children, since her husband abandoned the family. She lives in the city of Huambutio and has a small business selling groceries in her home. She also sells salchipapas (sausages and french fries) and pollipapas (chicken and french fries) as a mobile vendor. She tells us that she has a small cart which she uses to prepare the food.

At 5 in the evening, Salome gets out her cart and begins to prepare the food in front of her home. She continues until all the food is sold. She has sold salchipapas and pollipapas for three years.

Salome belongs to the “Virgen del Carmen de Huambutio” communal bank. She needs the loan to buy rice, chicken, potatoes, cooking oil, sausages and other supplies.

The borrower tells us that next month she will start work in a factory that makes pureed foods. She will work from 7 in the morning until 3 in the afternoon, Monday through Friday. The factory is located in the city of Oropesa, which is half an hour from her house. Because of this, she will have to get up very early to take care of her children and then go to work. Salome's dreams are to buy a freezer for her grocery store and help her children pursue professional careers.
