Luz Marina's story

Luz Marina is 31 years old and lives with her two children in the Pucará district, two hours from the city of Jaén in the Cajamarca region. This is in Peru's northern highlands. Here in Pucará the climate is warm and the people work in farming, with businesses and cattle raising.

Luz Marina makes a living selling beauty products, medicinal products and vitamins. She has been doing this work for four years, making her sales on order. She has a considerable number of customers. Luz Marina is applying for a loan of 3000 Nuevo Soles in order to buy products in larger quantities. She can then sell them to her customers and earn a higher income for her family.
