Abigail's story

Abigail is a member of the Palmeras [Palm trees] Community Bank. She has a common-law husband, is 40 years old and has two children. Abigail travels to the jungle in the Ayacucho region to sell fish and vegetables. While there she also buys various fruits which she then hauls in her rented car and sells in the food market in the city of Ayacucho. Abigail needs a loan of 600 Peruvian soles [about US $ 200], which she will invest in the purchase of chickens. Abigail's dreams are to buy a computer for her children and improve her business.
