A loan of $600 helped to buy clothes for far away towns.


Ludgarda's story

Fifty-eight year old Ludgarda is single and lives in her own house, which was built to accommodate six of her twelve children and her grandchildren. She lives with 14 people in her dwelling that is made of noble material. Ludgarda makes a living selling different styles, colours and sizes of clothing items. Every so often she buys her merchandise, which is the same as that which is sold in riverside towns. She sells secondhand clothing, such as trousers, t-shirts, blouses, dresses and other items. She has been doing this work on her own for 15 years. She also works selling organic products such as honey and healing peels and resins. Ludgarda very much enjoys working selling clothes because it lets her meet new customers and generate her own income. Because of this she would like to open a clothes shop and become stronger in the market. On this occasion she is applying for a loan pf 1500 Nuevo Soles to buy clothing items such as blouses, shirts, trousers, t-shirts, and more. She is very grateful for the opportunity of a loan that she has be given, and for the financial support which she needs to move forward.
