Lorenza is 44 years old, single, and has four children. Two of her children are independent, and the other two are 16 and 10 years old.

She devotes herself primarily to making handicrafts. She makes all types of handicrafts in the doorway of the Sonesta Posada Hotel in Yucay. She sells gloves, wool belts with appliques, scarves, lace scarves, blankets, and hats. Everything is made from wool from sheep and alpacas and synthetic wool.

She is now requesting a loan to be able to buy materials for making her different knitted products. She is requesting the loan to buy wool and other things to make her pieces of work.

She is very grateful for the loan, and she pledges to make her payments in a disciplined way.
