Ross Neri's story

Ross N. is a 37 year old widow with two children who are dependent on her. She lives in her own home with her children. Her house is located in Jesús Del Valle Settlement in Tambogrande Disrict. Ross lives in the rural part of this district, which now has basic services. Ross raises small animals such as sheep, chickens and turkeys, which she fattens to sell at the local market. She also sells flour for the preparation of chicha (maize liquor) and has customers throughout the area. These businesses have generated sufficient income to support her children and elevate their quality of life. Ross has applied for a loan of S/. 2,000, which she will use to purchase feed for the animals and to make improvements on their corral, erecting a roof for rainy periods. This will enable them to grow in better conditions so that she can sell them at a higher price at the local market, thereby earning a greater profit. This investment will enable Ross to continue expanding her business and improving her quality of life.
