A loan of $775 helped to buy fruit to sell.

Cruz Mariana's story

Mariana is a 37 year old woman. She lives with her husband and her minor son in Cruce Antigua Jaén – Olmos. Her husband is a contracted teacher, and he supports the family’s basic needs.

Mariana sells fruit and she buys recyclable materials. She has over seven years of experience in the rural community of Cruce Jaen Nuevo and the surrounding areas. She also travels to the forest two or three times a month to take fruit like watermelon, custard apples, and mangos to sell.

The 2,000 soles loan that she is requesting is to buy fruit to take to the forest and to Nueva Cajamarca because she has an established market in this area.

She is a recurrent client of our financial institution, and she is punctual with her payments. This is the sixth loan that she will receive.
