Jane Elizabeth's story

Jane Elizabeth is 49 years old, living with her partner in the district of Nueva Arica. They live in a rural zone where the population cultivates fruits such as apples and pears; as well as ranching and other forms of commerce. It is a drive of one hour and forty five minutes to the city of Chiclayo, on the northern coast of Perú.

Jane Elizabeth raises and sells domesticated birds in her backyard. She explains that she does this work to help her husband with the family expenses.

She has requested a loan of 2,000 nuevos soles (Peruvian currency) to purchase small animals which she will fatten and offer at a higher price. She will sell them in the surrounding neighborhoods of her community.
