Damares Elizabeth's story

Damares Elizabeth, 31, lives in her family's house in Pucará, two hours from the city of Jaén, in the northern highlands of Peru. It's an area where people grow fruit trees and coffee and are engaged in all types of commerce.

Damares has a small business selling clothing for men, women, and children, and is very well known in the area.

She has requested a loan for 3,000 nuevos soles [PEN] to buy seasonal clothing to stock her store for the Christmas season. This way she'll have more income for her family.
