Pereta's story

P. comes from a poor family of 12 people. They were poor enough so that sometimes their mother could not afford to send them to school. She is now 32 years old, married, and has five children of her own. She has experienced the difficulties of family life, as she does not have a job to support the family. Her husband is a hard working man and they have put all their effort and time into their plantation. Through days of working in the sun and sometimes in the rain, P. and her husband renovated their home. Through her previous loan she has installed a water supply. This is P.'s second loan, and she is planning to buy a water tank because the water supply in her area is very poor. Sometimes they hardly get water, so most of the time they rely on the rain water.
