Jenny Luz's story

Jenny Luz is a dynamic, cheerful 29 years old woman. She is the single mom of a young boy, who is the light of her eyes. She sells regional food such as “Juanes” (rice wrapped on leaf), “tacacho” (crushed bananas fried on pork fat), smoked fish and also soft drinks. In addition, she is dedicated to the manufacturing of charcoal.

Jenny has been a member of the Communal Bank “Mujeres Productivas” for a year. Her first loan was 300 soles. At the moment, she requires a 1,200 soles loan. Jenny will invest part of this money in soft drinks and products such as rice, olive oil and condiments. The rest of the money will be invested in wood for the charcoal production.

Jenny Luz’s goal is to have a pies and pastries business. Since where she lives there is no other person selling these products, this business would generate a bigger income. She also wants to provide her son a good education.
