Chowana belongs to the communal bank "Sembrando Futuro," in the Tarapoto district of the province and department of San Martin. She is 36, lives with a partner, and is the mother of 2 children aged 16 and 2. The oldest child is in high school.

Initially she was working as a technician in the executive secretariat of the municipality, and with the change in government she lost her job security.

With confidence and great dedication and independence, she decided to sell her prepared meals in the bus terminal and in this way cover her family's expenses. She started with capital of 300 Peruvian soles, and now she sells from her own house, providing a service where she prepares pre-ordered breakfasts to regular customers and lunches and dinners to university students and private institutes. This business that she has been developing allows her to have more time with her children, so she feels very satisfied.

With this new loan of 1,500 Peruvian soles, she will buy supplies such as vegetables, eggs, chicken, meat, sacks of rice, sacks of sugar, liters of cooking oil, and a variety of beans, fruits and vegetables. Also, she will use part of the money to buy plates, spoons, glasses, kitchen utensils, tables and chairs.
