Lorenza's story

Lorenza is a member of the Amaquella Communal Bank. She has two children. The first is 45 years old, and the second is 42 years old.

She sells groceries like rice, sugar, salt, oil, milk, eggs, flour, detergent, soap, shampoo, and noodles, etc. Her business is located in her house. Before becoming a member of Finca Perú she bought things for her store by the dozen; the amounts were smaller. Since she received the loans she buys each product, including the ones that are stored, by the case

Lorenza will use the loan she is requesting to buy rice, sugar, salt, milk, and eggs. Lorenza’s goal is to buy more display cases to be able to present her products.
