Maria's story

Maria is 51 years old and lives with her husband and children in the district of Buenos Aires, a community with a warm climate whose people work in farming, retail and raising livestock. The community is located in the province of Morropon that belongs to the region of Piura along the northern coast of Peru.

She makes a living selling chicha (a traditional corn-based alcoholic drink) and beer. Her business is located at her home. Her husband makes a living offering public transportation in his own motorcycle taxi. Maria has requested this loan for 1,000 nuevos soles to buy a large quantity of beer to offer her customers so that she can generate greater earnings for her family.
