Luz
Luz, 54 years old, is a simple woman. She lives with Tomas, her husband for 53 years. They have 5 children who they cared for and raised with much love. Now they live alone in their own house, located in the district of Cajas Chico. She is a working woman. In the mornings she sells sweets and drinks in the state school in her neighborhood, where from Monday through Friday the students and teachers visit her.

In addition, a few years ago she bought two automobiles, which she uses for public transport covering the Auquimarca routes. She helps her husband in this business, who drives one of the cars. She also sells crispy peas to various stores, where she visits three times a week, and makes a good profit, which is well known. Luz always take advantage of the holidays, where she can sell products people are asking for, such as bread during Easter, or nougats during El Señor D. los Milagros [Lord of Miracles celebration of the patron saint]. “I like being busy,” she says.

She belongs to the solidarity group called Las Wanquitas and this is the fourteenth loan with MFP. She is happy, because she will have financial support, as this makes her feel secure as she goes on with her work. And she in turn promises to make her payments. She also likes being a member of the group because all the members are responsible people and very close-knit. Luz will use the money from the loan to buy many different brands of Christmas breads and cakes.
