In all these years, she made good profit because she is well known. Over time, people started making a living doing the same, "competition", she says. For this reason, she started raising animals such as; chickens, guinea pigs, rabbits and pigs, which marketed after fattened. In addition, she makes and sells small crafts calls "damasitas" (wooden drums), this is what she likes most because she can express her art. She sells them in large quantities, according to the order, and the price is one new sol per unit.

This is her ninth loan with MFP. On the other hand, she promises to meet with her dues, as with the previous loans. In addition she is pleased to be part of your group because all its members are responsible and very supportive persons.

Luz will use the money to purchase of several pigs and other animals that she is breeding in order to fatten for sale.
