Ruly Mary's story

Ruly is a member of the Trigales (The Wheatfields) village bank. Ruly is 32 years old with two children and works with her husband manufacturing handcrafted bricks in the Compania community, which is 40 minutes from the city of Ayacucho. They hire some day laborers to assist them who they pay depending on their production. They sell the bricks in the same locale where they're produced but also deliver them directly to their customers. Sometimes, Ruly will also work growing and selling various vegetables.

Ruly needs a loan of $675 which she will invest in the purchase of firewood and in the payment of day laborers. Ruly hopes to grow her business, have her own capital, build a legitimate house and that her children will grow to be professionals.
