A loan helped to buy materials that she will use to better secure her house.


Lionidas's story

Lionidas, 40, lives in Chivay, a neighborhood of Arequipa. She is a hard-working woman and operates a wholesale food and drinks business. She is applying for a loan that she will use to buy the construction materials she needs to make her house safer and more secure.

When we asked Lionidas what she most wants in the future, she told us that she wants to make a better life for her parents and see her own business prosper.
