Irene, 37, lives with her son in Chumbenique, a rural area in the district of Oyotun. The people here grow rice and cotton. This place is located 2 hours from the city of Chiclayo, in the Lambayeque region of the northern coast of Peru.

Irene has requested a loan of 2,000 Peruvian soles to buy groceries in bulk. This way, she can generate more income for her family.
