Melania's story

Melania is the married, 43-year-old mother of three children. Melania grows root crops and cereals on her land in the community of Sachabamba, a district of Chiara, located three hours from the city of Ayacucho. Melania plants her crops twice a year, during July for her small farm which she harvests in January and during November which she harvests in July. She sends her crops to the city of Lima and sells them to wholesalers with the help of her son. Furthermore, Melania has a car to transport her goods to the city of Ayacucho.

Melania needs a loan of 2,500 Peruvian Nuevos Soles (US$ 900) to invest in replacement resources and to maintain her car. Melania is a member of Las Entusiastas Bank.

Melania’s dream is to buy a trailer to transport her products and that her younger son finishes school and becomes a professional.
