Julieta Sofia's story

Julieta Sofía is fifty-seven years old. She lives with her husband and son in the rural area of Oyotún, located about two hours form the city of Chiclayo on the northern coast of Peru. The people in this community make a living in agriculture and trade. She has been running a business out of her home selling beer, carbonated beverages, and prepared food items for ten years. Her husband helps her with this work; they are a very enterprising family. Julieta has requested a loan of 2,500 soles to buy beer, carbonated beverages, and ingredients to make her foods. In this way, she will grow her business and generate a higher income for her family.
