A loan of $375 helped buy ducks, chickens and guinea pigs.


Marilu's story

Marilú is 24 years old. She lives with her husband and her young son in rural El Palmo Cayaltí. The people there work in agriculture and the small animal trade. It is two hours from the city of Chiclayo. It's located in the Lambayeque region on the northern coast of Perú.
They are a close family striving to have a better quality of life. Marilú raises and sells small animals. Her business is located in the back of her home. She has requested a loan for 1,000 nuevos soles to invest in the purchase of small animals like ducks, chickens and guinea pigs and sell them at a good price. This will generate more income for her family.
