She lives in the city of Rayanniyoc, province of Calca, department of Cusco, Peru, about 30 miles from the city of Cusco. Juana gets up very early to take care of her household duties, for instance preparing breakfast and sending her small children to school. She has a small farm where she grows onion, oregano, potato and many other items. Juana also makes a living raising small animals. She has been dedicated to her business for a number of years and it has been going well thanks to her hard work. Juana is requesting a loan so she can invest in her children's education as well as purchase more seeds and fertilizers for her land. She is grateful for the opportunity this program provides and promises to fulfill her payments on time.
