A loan of $725 helped for the opening of an obstetric office.


Mariluz's story

Our applicant is a member of the Cristo Moreno communal bank. She lives in the city of Cusco.


Sra. Mariluz is 38 years old and lives with her two children, ages 11 and 7. She alternates her household activities with a weekend job washing the clothes of other people. She is trained as a midwife but for a lot of different reasons has been unable to practice her profession.


Now, she has decided to open an obstetric office in her house, and she will invest the money she is applying for in this new project. Sra. Mariluz appreciates the support offered through the loan and promises to meet all her debt payments according to the established installments.
