A loan of $950 helped to buy a vehicle (motor taxi).


Maria Sebastiana's story

María is a 35-year-old married woman with 3 children. She lives in her own home in the village of Tranca Sasape in the rural section of Túcume district. The area comprises 100 families and has potable water and electricity. María raises livestock and small animals like goats, sheep, and chicken on her property and later sells them. She learned this trade, which she has been doing since the age of 6, from her parents, so she knows every aspect of it.

The loan is 2500 nuevos soles, which will be used to buy a motorized vehicle (motor taxi) that costs 4100 nuevos soles. María already has 1600 nuevos soles and wishes to finance the difference with this loan. She will use the motor taxi to transport people, and her profits will be used to meet her household expenses.
