Luz
Luz, 39 years old, is married to Orlando, with whom she has 2 children. They live together in their own house. Luz is a responsible and reliable woman. More than 10 years ago, she started making wooden crates to hold fruit. For that, she uses wood from different trees such as cedar, walnut, avocado, and pine. Also, over time she expanded her workshop (located behind her house), and now she also makes furniture such as tables and chairs, or simply sells the wooden boards. The business is profitable, and with all the savings obtained she was able to open another business in her home where she sells some food items.

"The crate business is profitable, because the orders they place with me are for thousands, this week I have to sell two thousand crates to only one buyer," she notes. She needs your support, since she has to cover this order and she needs capital to acquire more wood. This is her second loan with Kiva, and she is thankful for the financial support received, since it allows her to continue moving forward. She also promises to make her repayments in a punctual manner.

Luz will use the 2000 soles to buy wood to make crates to hold fruit.
