Lucia
Lucia is married and has three children ages 2, 11 and 14. Her husband is a teacher but his income is insufficient to meet the family's expenses. Sadly, their eldest son suffers from a brain illness requiring constant treatment and costly operations. Lucia used to work as a receptionist but she wasn't earning enough until someone recommended that she start a business selling shoes. She has now been in business for three years and is slowly winning new customers. At this time Lucia is asking for a loan of $475 to buy merchandise and meet demand. She promises to repay the loan in 6-12 months. She and her family are grateful for your generous support.
