Maria Asunciona's story

Maria is 37 years old. She is married and has 2 school aged children. She has her own home and she lives in the rural zone of the district of Mórrope, where there are no water or light services. Her community is small, with about 200 families.

Maria works raising and selling animals, like turkeys, ducks, etc. She has done this work for the past 6 years. The business is located in her home. She learned this activity from her parents, which is to say she knows the routine to perfection. Also, she works making embroidery and handicrafts, a business from which she receives additional income to meet her daily expenses.

This loan will be destined for the construction of animal pens and the purchase of balanced food for her animals. She is competent in this type of business, but she also has a big market to sell to.

Maria is a hardworking woman who takes pains with her work. She is responsible and punctual. She is convinced that her best option is to continue growing as a businesswoman in order to improve the quality of life of her family.
