Maria Vanessa's story

María Vanessa is 31 years old. She lives with her husband and her four children in Cayaltí, a community dedicated to growing sugar cane, rice, and coffee. It is two hours from the city of Chiclayo on the northern coast of Peru.

She has a little store, located in her own home and the income she receives helps support her husband who works as a laborer. María Vanesa has requested a loan of 3,000 soles to buy various groceries and a showcase to exhibit her products so she can generate additional income for her family.
