A loan of $475 helped to buy clothing for sale..


Luz Marina's story

Luz, age 41, is married and lives with her husband in their own home in the Cayaltí district, located an hour away from the city of Chiclayo, capital of Lambayeque Province. She has great personal references. Luz has been working for over 10 years selling women's, men's and children's clothing. At the same time, she sells caramel and doughnuts from her home. Luz's husband works in the agriculture company located in Cayaltí. He also runs a transport service, with his own moto-taxi. They both contribute to their household expenses. Luz needs to buy more clothing to sell and so she's seeking a loan of 1,200 nuevos soles [PEN] from Edpyme Alternativa [Liva field partner] to meet her objectives.
