Lusita is 59 years old, and she is a single mother of eight! All of her children have since moved out of the house, but they take with them the many lessons that their mother Lusita taught them.
When she left her parents' house many years ago, Lusita dedicated herself to selling goods near the major streets in Guayaquil. In the past she also worked in a restaurant for the Ecuadorian Navy, but when they closed their doors, she moved her business to her home. It hasn’t been easy for Ms. C.. Her husband left her to raise all eight children, so she had to find part time work outside the home to bring in enough income for the family.

Lusita is requesting her second loan with the Kiva and Mifex program. She wants to continue investing in her store and buying more and better inventory. Her first loan was a success as she was able to increase profits and make some small improvements to her home.
