Luz Angelica's story

Mrs. Luz Angelica belongs to the communal bank "Manos Unidas" (United Hands) and lives in the San Martin region and province, Tarapoto district. She is retired from the health sector and now sells food and snacks on delivery. She does not have a stall or a locale. She prepares the food in her house and then takes it to her clients, the majority of whom are workers in different institutions. She started out thanks to the initiative of her work colleagues. It is going well and she already has 5 years in this type of business. They solicit her services when there are social meetings and all types of events.

With this 3,000 Soles loan, which will be paid off in 6 months, she will purchase products such as rice, sacks of sugar, gallons of oil, noodles, boxes of milk, and other ingredients that she needs for the daily preparation of the plates that she offers her clients, since the variety of the plates guarantee her sales and allow her to meet their requests.

Mrs. Luz Angelica is 59 years old. She lives alone with her husband because their children are already grown and on their own. She is a determined and happy woman and a good administrator. She has the goal of setting up a stall to sell snacks from her house, and therefore save in order to have a calm old age.
