Ross Mery's story

Ross Mery is 27 years old and was born in Yanahuara community, in Urubamba province, in Cusco department, Peru. She lives with her partner and has two children. Ross Mery currently lives in the community in which she was born.

Ross Mery tells us that most of the people in her community farm and raise livestock. When she was a very young girl, her parents gave her tasks to do at home and on the farm. One could say that she has always been in business buying and selling young animals and growing and harvesting crops such as potatoes, corn, etc.

On this occasion, Ross Mery requires a loan to buy livestock. She is a member of Asociación Arariwa's “Villa Marcela Virgen del Carmen” community bank.
