A loan of $575 helped to buy staple goods.

Luz Miryam's story

Luz Miryam, 50, says that her greatest priority is her family's well-being. "My effort, my struggle and needs are rewarded by the great love which my children give me every day. When I get home and see a smile on their faces, I realize that everything I've done has been worth it." With these words, Luz narrates the motivation that her family gives her in order to move forward and work towards a better future for them.

Due to her condition as a single mother, Luz has had to be both mother and father to her children, which created the need to search for a source of income to guarantee food and housing for her children.

Thanks to her efforts, Luz managed to open a store in her home, which allowed her to take care of her children and generate the income necessary to sustain her household. She believes that her business has been the greatest gift which God could have given her, because thanks to this business, she has never had to suffer from hunger.

Her greatest dream is to see her business grow, which is why she has applied for a loan. She will use this loan to buy staple goods in order to increase her level of sales and improve her earnings. She hopes to continue growing as a small businesswoman and to improve her family's quality of life.
