Lucy's story

Lucy is 39 years old, in a common-law relationship, and resides in her own home with her husband and their two children. They live in the District of La Matanza in Morropón Province, Department of Piura, Peru. Lucy has very good personal and work-related references from the local residents. Most of the people who live in this area engage in agriculture, trade, and livestock breeding.

Lucy sells soft drinks for a living and has more than 19 years of experience in this trade. She is requesting a loan in order to buy more soft drinks in order to increase her sales. This will help her generate more income for herself and her family.
