Mrs. Luz C. T. is a member of the Communal Bank. “Saint Rose of Lima,” lives in the San Martin region, in Mariscal Caceres Province, in the district of Juanjui. She is developing her business in three business stands in the Brisas del Huallaga market in the city of Juanjui. Daily, she tends to the residents who visit the market to buy their basic necessities. When her children reached school age, she felt the need to work in order to help her husband with the maintenance of their home. It has been 22 years since she began with small sales of fruits and vegetables. Now, she has established a clientele that knows her, whom she tends to daily for the purchase of their products. With the credit of 1000 PEN ($375 U.S. dollars) that she would be able to pay off within a period of 6 months, she would invest in the purchase of bunches of bananas, oranges, lemons, and other fruits typical to the region, in order to increase business in her three sales stands. Luz shows a lot of energy and vitality, she enjoys the business that she is developing together with her husband and her children and dreams of one day opening a stand for the sales of groceries.
