Rosa Angelica's story

Rosa, 32, is married and has two minor children in her care. She owns her house that’s located in Mórrope District’s Cruz del Médano sector where she lives with her husband and children. The community’s quality of life is at the subsistence level. Most are independent workers in commerce or animal husbandry and also work in agriculture and also as employees doing farming tasks.

The commercial activity that Rosa does is raising small farm animals. Her husband works as a fisherman. She has ten years’ experience in said activity. Her animals business is located at her house and she has regular customers like merchants from the Chiclayo markets.

The amount of the loan is 2000 new soles and she is going to use it to buy small farm animals, goat and sheep, to raise. She intends to use the loan to expand the corrals and to buy feed to fatten up the animals and the pigs too. She’s set the goal of expanding her inventory with respect to the animals because it’s a very profitable activity in the zone. She also is thinking about buying a sewing machine for her daughter who is a seamstress.
