Lidia's story

Lidia lives with her husband Severino and their four children in the area of Alto San Isidro, located thirty minutes from the center of town. Lidia sells groceries on credit, such as rice, pasta, sugar, and oil. She doesn't deliver the groceries in the city but takes them to the towns outside the city. For example, she goes to the town where her husband's parents' town. This activity she has is exhausting since she has to travel far to the towns and has to load and unload the merchandise. Severino works as a bricklayer contractor. They live in her parents' family home but want to save enough money to buy their own home. At this time, Lidia is asking for the loan to increase her capital by buying rice, pasta, and sugar. Lidia is a strong and hardworking person and is happy for the opportunity being offered to her.
