Elisa's story

38-year-old Elisa lives in the city of Jaén, Cajamarca, Perú, where she makes a living raising and selling small animals, particularly roosters and chickens.

Elisa will use this first loan to buy a wider variety of animals such as ducks and chickens, which she wants to use to expand her business to bring in more income and improve her lifestyle.
