A loan of $650 helped to buy different sizes of sawed wood.


Luz Amanda's story

Luz Amanda, Banco Comunal "Las Victorias" partner, lives in San Martín department, Mariscal Cáceres province, Juanjui district. She is 42 and lives with her husband, who supports her in her projects. Luz Amanda sells sawed wood out of her home at Jr. Trujillo No 165. Her customers are her neighbours who need her product.

With this 2,000 sol loan, which she will repay in six months, Luz Amanda will buy sawed wood in different sizes in order to vary her prices so her customers can choose what is best for them. That way, she will guarantee her sales and her customers’ loyalty.

She is very optimistic and fights hard to carry out her plans. Later she wants to expand her location to store her wood better.
