Edit Luz's story

EDIT LUZ M. V. is a member of the “MUJERES SHIPIBAS” Microfinance Institute. She lives in Yarinacocha. She is a 45-year-old mother of two. Her husband works as a machine operator.

She started her own general store with her first 300.00 PEN loan. She purchased goods so that she could sell them at her store.

Now, she and her family have made progress, and the general store has improved. With this 1,400.00 PEN loan, she will purchase assorted goods and fruits to restock her shop.
