A loan of $775 helped to buy livestock for selling, as well as to fix up and improve her corrals.

Julia's story

Julia is 50 years old and married with two dependent children. She lives in her own home with her husband and children. Her house is located in the rural community of Nueva Esperanza Hualtaco III, in the Tambogrande District. She doesn't have basic services.

Julia's primary activity is raising sheep and poultry, and she already has 15 heads of sheep. She also spends her time on the lemon harvest on a 1 hectare inherited plot. This activity is divided between spouses, who mutually support each other.

Her husband makes his living doing agricultural work. They both work day after day so that their home will be better off.

Julia wishes to buy animals to sell and vaccinations to keep them healthy, as well as to fix up and improve her corrals. This is why she thought it prudent to get a loan of 2000 nuevos soles to achieve her goal.
