María is a 46 year old woman who’s married and has no dependent children. She lives in her own house with her husband in the Tejedores settlement in Tambogrande District. The location has some basic utilities.

The activity she carries out is sale of fresh milk in said settlement; she has 8 head of dairy cows producing milk and she also has sheep and barnyard fowl. She has sold milk and raised animals for more than 10 years. Both spouses share the work and mutually support each other.

The loan request is for 3000 new soles that will be used to do some home improvements, specifically replacing the metal roof sheeting because it’s in poor shape. She will also use part of the loan for corn crop maintenance.
