Luzmila is requesting a loan of 2100 soles to buy sugar, shredded coconut and fresh milk. She will buy the milk from dairy farmers from the Alpachaca region, who deliver it to her the day before she plans to make ice cream so that she can mix it with the other ingredients and chill the mixture overnight.
Luzmila’s goal for the future is to finish paying off a plot of land she is buying, on which she hopes eventually to build a house someday.
