Luz Marina's story
Luz is 42 years old and lives with her husband in their own house. She has a lot of experience in the clothes selling business. She walks around selling in the Ica marketplace every morning until noon, including weekends. Her husband is retired and drawing a small pension. This motivates them to move ahead, now that this allows them to be financially independent and pay for their son's education, who is the reason for all of their effort. Luz's dream is to be able to finish building their home in order to be able to rent out rooms on the second floor. She is asking for this loan in order to invest in more merchandise, now that the school year has begun. She is very responsible and promises to make her payments on time.
