A loan of $1,125 helped to fix her car's engine.


Liliana Cris's story

Liliana is 23 years old, has a 4-year-old child and is expecting another baby. At this time she is seven months pregnant. Liliana and her family live in Imperial, a cozy city south of Lima (the capital). Imperial is a very calm city where one can see the Afroperuvian influence. The people make a living in agriculture and producing the flagship product of Pisco (a liquor). Liliana and her husband both work to provide for their growing family, and it's for this reason her husband is currently making a living as a baker. Liliana also was working, but because of her pregnancy she can't continue as a grocer's assistant, where she only earned tips for her services. To make headway and to increase the income she was making, she and her husband were able to purchase a car, which they have rented out as a taxi for the past two years. She also has dedicated a lot of time to the car's care so that it generates the necessary revenue. Currently, Liliana has been able to scrape together a little bit of money, and she hopes you lend them the remaining sum to repair the car's engine, which is very damaged. Thanks to this help she will be able to finish her pregnancy peacefully and she and her husband won't have to worry about the car.
