A loan of $375 helped to buy a variety of fruits to sell to customers.


Santos Maria's story

María is 53 years old and lives with her daughter in the Cayaltí district of Chiclayo province, in the Lambayeque region of Peru's northern coast. Here the people make a living in farming, business and cattle raising.

María makes a living selling fruit outside the district market. She is well-known for her work and receives support from her daughter. María has applied for a loan of 1000 Nuevo Soles in order to buy a variety of fruits to sell to customers. This way she can earn a higher living for her family.
