A loan of $375 helped to buy pigs and turkeys to sell.

Evelin Melissa's story

Evelin Melissa, age 26, lives with her husband and their two children in the Oyotun district. The population there works in agriculture, commerce, and with livestock. It is two hours from the city of Chiclayo on the northern coast of Peru.

She raises and sells small animals; turkeys, pigs, chickens, and guinea pigs in the area behind her house. She is an enterprising woman.

She has requested a loan for 1,000 soles to buy pigs and turkeys to sell in the areas outlying her community. This way she will have greater income for her family.
