A loan of $825 helped to buy thread and alpaca wool.

Lucia's story

Lucia lives in the Alto San Isidro zone, which is located 25 minutes from the center of the city. She is married to Romualdo who works as a construction worker. Together they have five children, two of which are adults while the three minor children are of school age.

Lucia makes a living hand weaving cloth and alpaca wool fabrics. These are artisan fabrics and she sells them at a good price. However, it takes her a week to make a complete piece of fabric and more for the fringe.

Lucia is requesting the loan to buy thread and alpaca wool to weave fabric as she already has an order to fulfill. Her biggest dream is to see her children have a profession and be good people.
