Marleny's story

Marleny is 45 years old and lives with her husband in the District of Buenos Aires. This area is known for general trade, but her community is especially known for making "chicha de jora", a beverage that was prepared during the time of the Incas. Marleny lives in Morropon, which is two hours away from the city of Piura and located near the northern coast of Peru.

She sells "chicha de jora", beer, and snacks. Marleny's business is located in her home. She says that her business allows her to assist her husband with their family's expenses. Marleny is requesting a loan of 3,000 PEN in order to renovate the location of her business. This will allow her to have a larger space where she can accommodate her customers. This will increase demand and generate more income for her family.
