A loan of $500 helped to buy animal feed.


Graciela's story

Graciela is a 54-year-old woman. She is a widow and cares for her three children. She lives in her own home with her children in the town of Totoral Alto in the district of Tambogrande. She lives in the rural area, but she has electricity.

Graciela raises cows, cheep, and pigs for a living. They produce either meat or milk, which are sold at the local market. She also has 1ha of farmland that her children work on.

The sum of her loan is 1,300 nuevos soles, which will be used to buy animal feed for her livestock and to buy fertilizers that will help her crops grow strong to be sold later.
