Julia Ramierez G. D. M. is 36 years old and lives in Ayacucho, Perú with her husband and six children.

Julia follows the festivals in the area and sells fruits and vegetables. She has been selling groceries for 15 years. Julia takes care of her six children when she is not working.


The loan of 2,200 soles (US$750) will be invested into her business to purchase various fruits and vegetables including bananas, peaches, mandarins, onions, carrots, and eggplant.
