Nelida's story

Nélida is 34 years old, and lives with her husband in the district of La Matanza, which is located two hours from the city of Piura on the northern coast of Peru. The population of La Matanza works in agriculture, trade and cattle raising.

She works selling chicha de jora, a drink made from corn. Her business is located in her house. She is requesting a loan of 3000 nuevos soles to fix the area where she offers her product, which will allow her to have a nicer place to welcome her customers. The loan will also be used to purchase containers and supplies to make the chicha de jora.
