A loan of $1,200 helped to buy more products, e.g. maca (a peruvian root grown for its nutritional and medicinal value).

Lucy Gladys's story

Lucy is 66 years old and has 3 children. She was born in the city of Arequipa and now lives in the city of Cusco. Lucy has a small business selling plant-based food products and herbal medicines. Lucy needs the loan to buy more products, such as maca. [Translator's note: maca is a peruvian root grown for its nutritional, medicinal, and reputed aphrodisiac value.]

Lucy belongs to the “Inti Pakareq” communal bank, part of the Arariwa Association. She is grateful for the opportunity offered in this way and promises to make her repayments on schedule.
