A loan of $375 helped to finish her kitchen and buy cabinets, windows, and a door.


Mary Bebelu's story

Mary Berbeleu, 30, lives with her children in rural Oyotun, where the residents grow rice, yuca, and corn. It is two hours from the city of Chiclayo on Peru's north coast. Mary raises pigs and turkeys in her backyard to sell later. She says she has been doing this since she got married to help pay household expenses. Her husband is a bricklayer. She has applied for a loan of 1000 nuevos soles to finish her kitchen and buy cabinets, windows, and a door so that the space is clean and she can safely prepare food for her family.
