Maria Anita's story

Maria is 24 years old, single, and lives in home of her own, located in the Lambayeque district in a small community of approximately 50 families. Lambayeque is a tourist city full of history and traditions that make it one of the two most visited destinations in the northern part of the country.

Maria makes and sells chicha, a traditional drink in northern Peru. She’s been doing this for three years and she has gained much experience and many customers. Her business is in her home and she learned this from her parents, so she knows the field perfectly.

Maria wants to buy roofing materials that will allow her to make improvements to her house. She knows her business very well but also has a large space to make sales.
