A loan of $350 helped buy cheese and pork.


Maruja's story

Maruja is a member of the Musuq Rumi, which in Quechua means New Rock, Communal Bank.

Maruja is 34, married, and has three children. Maruja travels to different regional fairs where she sells fish and chicken. At the fairs she buys cheese and small animals, which she sells in the city of Ayacucho.

Maruja needs a loan for 1,000 PEN to buy cheese and pork.

Maruja’s dreams are that her children become professionals and to improve her business.
