View original language description ↓
Luz belongs to the "Las Riojanitas" ("The Rioja Girls") community bank. She lives in the Peruvian "region" of San Martin and earns a living buying and selling fresh fish brought inland from the coast. She built her business working at home and selling in the surrounding neighborhood. Her goal was to support herself working at home and after trying various businesses, she decided on buying and selling fresh fish.


With the S/.3000 (3000 Peruvian soles) loan, to be repaid in 6 months, she will buy bulk supplies of fresh fish, of all types and sizes, along with ice to keep it fresh.


Luz lives with her husband and 4 children, all of whom support her. She works tirelessly so that she can see the results of her work and feel useful. She has a lot of plans for the future, one of which is to have a shop in her house.
