A loan of $1,075 helped to buy blouses and underwear.


Maria Teresa's story

Maria had nine children, but now she lives alone with her husband and a grandchild who is in her care and studies at the university. Maria sells maD.-to-order clothes, a business that she runs with the help of her daughters who work in the jungle. She sends the clothes to her daughters or sometimes she takes the opportunity to deliver the clothes there herself. She also travels to fairs where she buys cereals that she then sells in the city of Ayacucho. She is requesting a loan of 3,000 soles, and she will invest this money in the purchase of blouses and underwear. It is Maria’s dream to have a grocery store and to farm chickens with her daughter.
