A loan of $400 helped to buy wood and employ a carpenter.


Nancy's story

Nancy is 41 years old and married to Victor, 38. Together they have set-up a solid family with three children. At the moment they live in a home constructed from a base of wood, which they built gradually.

Currently Nancy works as a cacao and organic coffee producer, and this is thanks to some land that she obtained for a low price. As the years have gone by she has managed to take her family forward and consolidate her family finances by selling cacao beans.

Because of making financial progress, she has thought about opening a grocery store to increase her income, a further advantage being that there is no other grocery store in the nearby area. It's for this, that thanks to a prepared area in her home she wants to construct the premises of her future business with wood and requires 1000 soles to buy wood and hire a carpentry teacher.
