Mariluz's story

Mariluz is 31 years old and married to Carlos, age 29. They bought a house together and live there with their young son. Mariluz sells groceries and has been working out of her home for the past five years. She normally works alone, but sometimes she has the help of her partner who takes charge of making sales. Mariluz enjoys her work very much since she had always wanted her own business.

Her business always generates income thanks to the villagers who come to her store to buy supplies for preparing their meals. However, the problem she faces on occasion is the lack of certain products. For this reason, she needs to access this loan so that she can stock her store with all of the necessary grocery items.

This will be her second loan. Once again, Mariluz is grateful for the trust shown to her and promises to submit her payments on time just as she did with her previous loan. With this loan of 3,000 PEN, she will restock her store with merchandise such as rice, sugar, spices, vegetables, preserves, beverages, and other products.
