A loan of $375 helped to buy feed for young animals.


Melchora's story

Melchora is 50 years old and lives with her husband and daughter in the Cayalti district. Here the people make a living growing sugar cane, rice, and fruits. Two hours from the city of Chiclayo, on Peru's northern coast, everybody here works in business and in farming.

Melchora has a small business which she runs out of her home. She raises and sells ducks, guinea pigs, and poultry. Melchora is applying for a loan of 1000 Nuevo Soles in order to buy animal feed. This will give her better production to offer to her customers. In turn Melchora will have a higher income for her family.
