Lucy
View original language description ↓
Doña Lucy is fifty years old, and when her husband abandoned her, she searched for a way to make a living. This is how, with much effort, she was able to acquire two sewing machines to start her small sewing shop to make rain ponchos. She does this work very efficiently with the help of her two younger children. This hardworking model mother works very hard from 7:00 in the morning until 8:00 at night in the company of her beloved family. The wish of Lucy and her family is to have more fabric to make their waterproof ponchos and to distribute them on a wholesale basis to the different markets in the city. During this rainy season, the markets are demanding a large number of these garments. To secure their plans, Lucy is requesting a loan, which she will invest and use to obtain other economic benefits. Let's contribute so the dreams of this hard-working family can become reality.
