View original language description ↓

Ruth is part of the communal bank Mujeres Trabajadoras (working women), of Alfonso Ugarte in the district of Calleria, department of Ucayali. She is 42 years old and the mother of 2 children. Her husband, for health reasons, does not have secure work, so Ruth looked for a business opportunity that allowed income. With her first loan by Manuela Ramos, she decided to sell chickens.

She counts on the help of her husband. Managing the business together, they get up at 3am, and finish selling at 10am, tired but content. With the loan from Manuela Ramos of $966, she will buy more chickens, and with the balance she will build a shed to raise the 500 chickens.

Despite the difficulties with her husband's health, Ruth feels very content to work together with him, as well to have their own income to cover the needs of the house.
