A loan of $350 helped buy 16 bags of high-quality wool for knitting.


Luz Crisalda's story

Luz is a member of the Ayni Village Bank; “Ayni” means “help one another” in Quechua. She is 54 years old and is a widow. She has three children, who have all graduated from college with professional degrees. Luz knits sweaters and decorative cloths in her free time, which she sells from her home. She works as an elementary school teacher during the week.



Luz is requesting a loan of 1050 soles to buy about 16 bags of high-quality wool for knitting.



Luz has been working with the Ayni Village Bank for five years now. Her goal for the future is to retire from teaching and start working with other women who knit and take orders for items.
