Maribel's story

Maribel is 43 years old. She lives with her children in the district of Pucará, two hours from the city of Jaén in the Cajamarca region in the North Andes of Peru. The people here grow and sell fruit and raise cattle.

Maribel sells coffins, working in agreement with the Municipal services and Medical Station of Pucara. She also offers sewing services and cleaning clothing. She is well-known in the area for the work she does. She is requesting a loan of 800 PEN to buy plastic flower arraignments and small glass chapels to offer more variety to her clients. This will generate more income for her family.
