Maria Juana's story

María, age 65, is married and does not have any dependent children. She lives in the Mórrope district, a place known for being comprised of a central town where all of its commerce can be found. There are several outlying rural communities where very humble and hard-working people live. The area belongs to the Lambayeque province, and it is located over one and half hours from the city of Chiclayo.

María sells groceries in a store at her house, and she sells a variety of products there. María sells soft drinks, candy, rice, sugar, bread, and others. She has a loyal clientele.

She also raises poultry, which she sells when they have reached a good level of development. Her husband is a farmer, and he grows corn on their own land.

María wants to make her business grow. That is why she believes it is advisable to get a loan for 1,700 soles. She will use the loan to buy more feed for her livestock and to provide maintenance to the farmland that they have. This way she will achieve her objective.
