A loan of $425 helped purchase fish and improve her stall.

Miriam's story

Miriam is a member of the communal bank Totorilla.

She is 32 years old and lives with her partner and three children. Miriam sells fish on Saturdays and Sundays at the fish market in the city of Ayacucho. She acquires her products in Lima where she travels to every weekend. Miriam also has a "cebicheria" with her husband which is located in her in-laws' home and which requires her daily attention.

Miriam needs a loan in the amount of $425 which she will invest in the purchase of fish and in improving her stall.

Miriam's dreams are to have her own stall, to build her home and to have a chain of cebicherias.
