Victoria's story

Victoria L. E. Santos is a business woman and community leader in the town of Mache, high in the sierras (mountain range) of the La Libertad region of Peru. Victoria raises and sells animals, such as pigs, chickens, guinea pigs, and cows, and wheat, alfalfa, corn, rice, and vegetables. She spends a lot of time traveling to and from Trujillo, the capital of the region, where she does a lot of business.

Victoria is 50 years old, married, and has 6 children. All of her children have moved to Trujillo, so she is hoping to live closer to them one day. She is very popular in her community. She is the president of her community bank and is also an officer with the Ministry of Health.

A member of the Mujeres de Mache community bank, Victoria is requesting a loan of s/2000 ($725 USD) that she will repay over 4 months. She will use the extra capital to buy a few more pigs to raise and sell.
