Agustina's story

Agustina is 59 years old and lives with her husband and daughters in the Cayatlí district. The inhabitants of the town, two hours away from the city of Chiclayo on Peru's northern coast, work in farming, running businesses, and raising cattle.

Agustina has been making a living selling food dishes in the local market for five years. She is well-known for the tasty dishes she offers. Agustina also sells skinned chicken. Agustina's family is very close and everybody puts in a lot of effort in their work. Agustina's husband supports her with this work. The couple has a lot of customers.

Agustina is applying for a loan of 3000 Nuevo Soles in order to repair her house and, therefore, enjoy a better quality of life.
