Ivonne's story

Ivonne is someone who does not mess around. She is dedicated to selling juanes and tamales (regional dishes from the Peruvian jungle) in a stand at the market in her region. Due to her good flavor and service, she works with an exclusive clientele who eat her dishes. She gets up very early to prepare the juanes and tamales and later carries them to sell at her stand. Ivonne is 45 years old and a single mother. She has two children who study and they are her reason for moving forward in her work. Eventually she wants to rent a permanent place to sell her regional dishes and then give her clients a good reception. She now requires a loan to stock her business with everything necessary to make her dishes.
