Lucinda's story

Lucinda is 60 years old, married, and has four children who are grown up and independent. She lives alone with her husband in their own house. Lucinda works selling groceries and auto parts. She opened a store in her home where she tends to her customers who are largely her neighbors. She started the business six years ago when she was in need of additional income. It has since grown and she has more customers. She likes her business because it allows her to be at home with peace of mind from a stable income. She also has free time for other activities and taking care of her home. On the contrary, she does not like when her customers ask to purchase goods on credit. She mentions that she has already had bad experiences with this type of sale. With this loan, Lucinda is asking for 2500 Peruvian Nuevo Sols. She is thankful for the financial support so she can finalize her plans and also be able to pay her bills on time. She will invest the loan amount in purchasing groceries wholesale, such as sugar, rice, flour, etc.
