Angelica Teresa's story

Angelica Teresa, 43, is a single mother. She lives in the tiny town of Las Delicias, a rural area in Oyotun district. The main sources of income for people in the district are agriculture and other small businesses. The district is about two hours from the city of Chiclayo and is part of the Lambayeque region along Peru's northern coast.

Angelica works hard and is known for her food business. She makes and sells pasta with chicken, Huancaina-style potatoes and other local dishes. She also sells wholesale supply of "chileno". Angelica is applying for a S./ 2,500 new soles loan that she will use to pay for repairs to her house, an investment that will help to give her a decent place to live.
