A loan of $200 helped to buy products for her business.

Ana Maria's story

Ana María, 28, is single and has a child in her direct care. She lives with her mother, who is the co-signer for the loan, in a rural district of Lambayeque which has all the basic utilities.

Ana María has been in the business of selling beer for two years. She took over management when her mother ceased in the business, so she is well acquainted with the sector.

She is requesting a loan in the amount of 500 PEN which she will use to buy beer. There is competition in the industry but also a broad market in which to do business.
