This is a rural part of the district that has electricity but no other basic services. Maria has a business selling several varieties of seedlings that she has planted on her land. She also has a producing lemon plantation that she harvests weekly. In addition she raises sheep and pigs, which she sells in a local market when they reach the requisite weight and size. She has been in business for 9 years. There is a fixed permanent market for these products. She is applying for a loan of S/. 2,000 and will use it to purchase seeds and fertilizer for new seedlings as well as nutritional feed for her animals.
