Maria Elva's story

Maria is 41 years old and lives in the family home, made of rustic materials, along with her parents and two young boys. She lives in the rural area of the district of Pucará, a community dedicated to agriculture and livestock that is situated in the province of Jaén, the region of Cajamarca, and the northern mountains of Perú.

She works renting video games out of her home. She has play station consoles that she rents as well. She has experience in the business and good personal and work references from her district. The loan will be used to make repairs and to maintain her videogame consoles and also to purchase a larger quantity of video games since she wants to offer better service to her customers which will generate greater income and thus help her improve her quality of life and that of her family.
