Maria Fermina's story

María Fermina, 40, is a married woman with two minor children. She has a house of her own and lives with her family in the Monteverde sector, a rural zone in Mórrope District. Her community has approximately 150 families.

Her activity is selling groceries at home and raising animals to sell; when they reach ideal size and weight she sells them in the local market. She does both mentioned activities at home and has more than three years’ experience in the line of work. She earns extra income working in agriculture.

Her store is of much benefit to her neighbors because the zone they live in is far from the main town and her store provides basic staples they need.

She’s worked with a Kiva loan previously and she’s quite grateful to the people who supported her on that occasion. She’s currently requesting a 2,300 new sol loan to buy more groceries like rice, sugar, oil and other basic staples to stock her store and also to buy nutritionally balanced animal feed.
