Jesus Enma
View original language description ↓
Jesús Enma is 50 years old and she completed only primary school. She has three children who are still dependant on her. She lives in the district of Mache, in the province of Otuzco, in the department of La Libertad. She raises small animals and also buys cattle, which she kills in order to sell their meat to buyers who come from Trujillo.

Jesús belongs to the “Progresistas” community bank, from which she received her first loan of S/. 300.00. With that money she bought 2 pigs, guinea pigs, and chickens. With a loan of S/. 1,300.00, which she will pay back in 4 payments, she will buy 2 calves.

Jesús began by selling small animals, and bit by bit, she used the profits to start buying cattle and that is how she got into this business.

Currently, she is the treasurer of the popular, small restaurant cooperative called “Corazón de María”. Her greatest dream is to put a well-stocked store in her house.
