Luciana's story

Luciana was born in the community of Vallecito Suaray in the city of Anta. She is 42 years old and lives in the same community where she was born. She is married and has four children from this marriage.

Luciana sells vegetables. Twice a week, she brings her products to the city of Puerto Maldonado, where she distributes them to resellers at different markets in that city. She also sells wood and raises young animals like guinea pigs and other animals. She has been doing this work for several years and it is going very well thanks to the commitment she puts into her work. At this time, Luciana needs a microloan to buy more merchandise, such as onions, potatoes, cabbage, and more.

Luciana is a responsible person who belongs to Asociación Arariwa's “Warmicuna Llanqanchis” communal bank in the city of Cusco, Peru. Cusco is where you will find the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, Peru. The name “Warmicuna Llanqanchis” comes from the Quechua language and translates into Spanish as “Mujeres que Trabajamos" ["Women who Work"].
