A loan of $375 helped to have working capital to buy manure and fertilizers for her vegetables.


Maria's story

Maria, 22, is divorced and has two children. She alternates her daily activities with the sale of ‘jora de maíz’ (used to prepare chicha, a drink made from fermented corn). She also farms vegetables like carrots, tomatoes and lettuces which she then sells in Urubamba’s Modelo Market in an ambulatory way. She wants to have a stand in the market to sell her vegetables. She is asking for funds to have working capital and be able to buy fertilizers and manure for her vegetable crops. She is a member of the “Mainique” communal bank located in Mainique district, Urubamba province, Cusco department. She avails herself of this platform to express her gratitude to all those who share her dream and commits to repay in a timely fashion.
