A loan of $600 helped purchase a freezer.


Lucy's story

Lucy is 45 years old. She is married and she has two children. The children are 18 and 13 years old. Both are in school. Lucy sells a variety of meats at her butcher shop located in the Tahuantinsuyo area. This loan is her second with the institution. Lucy is going to use this loan to purchase a large freezer for keeping her products in good condition. The reason for requesting this loan is that a freezer is required for selling meat. The challenge Lucy faces in her business is competition since there are several butchers in the area. She has a large customer base because of her friendly manner with her customers. She is going to use these benefits to purchase another large freezer. Her wish for her business is to have a stable and profitable business in order to be able to increase her earnings
