Luz Marina's story

Luz Marina was born in the Department of Cusco. Today, Luz Marina is 41 years old and married; the fruits of this union are her three children, aged 13, 9 and 1.

Luz Marina lives in the same city where she was born, and this is where she works. She is a teacher, and works in a private school where she teaches high-school level Mathematics. She has been teaching for 15 years, and it's going very well for her. She also has a small family business selling foodstuffs from her home.

On this occasion, Luz Marina is requesting a loan for buying merchandise; for example bags of sugar, bags of rice, bags of noodles and canned food.

The "Comuzone IV" Communal Bank meets monthly in the city of Cusco (in Peru). Cusco is well-known for being an area with much tourism and commerce, for its traditional Inti Raymi festival, and because it's where you find Machu Picchu, one of the seven wonders of the world.
