Lucinda's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped purchase a larger quantity and wider variety of products.
Lucinda is 35 years old, she lives with her unmarried partner and they have a son together. They live in the town of Piquijaca in the district of San Felipe, in the province of Jaen, the region of Cajamarca in the north of Peru. The population here is dedicated primarily to agriculture and cultivates the lima bean as its most important crop. Lucinda runs her own grocery store that is also located in her home next to the highway and is well positioned to take advantage of the traffic. She has more than 4 years of experience and offers good service. Her experience counts when it comes to the number of customers she has in town and in the surrounding areas. She has many good personal, moral and financial references. She would like to invest this loan in purchasing a larger quantity and wider variety of products for her store so she can diversify her stock and have more to offer her customers. She also hopes to attract new customers, earn more money and be able to provide a better quality of life for herself and her family.
