Luz Maria's story

Luz is a very hard-working woman. She lives in the city of Carhuaz. She gets up very early every day in order to be able to work in her business of selling sweets and products like sweet corn, wheat bran, and sweet noodles, among others. She has been selling for wholesale and retail for 17 years. With the fruit of her humble work, she is able to get her family ahead.

Luz is grateful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to the help they have provided her with, she will be able to buy more supplies in order to be able to sell her candies wholesale and things like corn, and noodles, among others. This way she will improve her income and continue struggling in order to be able to make her big dream come true. Her big dream is to give her child a profession.
