A loan of $250 helped to fix a wall in her house.

Teofila's story

Teofila, 63, lives with her husband and children in the Cayalti district, two hours from the city of Chiclayo on Peru's north coast. The residents grow sugar cane and corn, run businesses, and raise livestock. Teofila and her family raise barnyard animals behind their house, and her husband farms. Teofila has applied for a loan of 700 nuevos soles to fix a wall in her house that was damaged by last season's constant rains so that their house is safer.
