Luz Alicia's story

Luz Alicia is 52 years old. She lives with her husband in the district of Oyotun, two hours from the city of Chiclayo, on Peru's North Coast. The people here grow rice, corn, yucca, are involved in business and raise livestock.

Luz sells groceries, rice, milk and sugar. Her business is located in her house. She explained to us that they are building another room to rent out with the income from the business.

This enterprising woman has requested a loan to buy more groceries to stock her store. In this way she can generate more income for her family.
