Mery's story

Mery is 38 years old, married, and her spouse is named Ponciano. Mery works sewing polleras [traditional Andean skirts] with her spouse. Her work is good and always requested. Mery has been in her business for 8 years and has 4 children. One of them has finished secondary school.

Mery and her spouse managed to purchase land some time ago and she wants a loan to build rooms on her land and also to purchase additional construction materials. Currently, Mery lives in her parents' house with her spouse and children, living in 3 rooms, which is not enough for her family.

Mery's dream is to be able to finish building her house and that her children and go to university, since she was obligated to work in sewing and does not want to pass this on to her children. Mery has worked since she was very young and for this she hopes that you can help her. Mery is in the photo with her spouse.
