Elvia's story

Elvia, 40, lives with her husband and children in Cayalti in the province of Chiclayo which belongs to the Lambayeque region on the north coast of Peru. In this community the people work in agriculture, commerce and raising livestock.

Elvia raises and sells pigs, a profession she has had for more than six years. She raises them on some land at the back of her house. She is asking for a loan of 2,000 nuevos soles to buy corrugated metal sheets to build a roof for the barn where she houses her pigs. This will help her to improve her business and offer a better service to her customers.
