Maria Bertha's story

María Bertha, 48, lives with her daughter in her own house and has public electricity and water service. They live in the district of Morropón, known as the capital of the "tondero," a traditional dance in northern Peru. It's located in the Piura region of the province of the same name, on the northern coast of Peru. The people there work in agriculture, commerce, and ranching.

María raises and sells cattle. She also sells groceries, beer, and recharge cards for mobile phones. Her daughter helps her with the store; they're a close family.

María has requested a loan for 1,000 soles [PEN] to buy a variety of staple products to sell to her customers and earn more income for her family.
