Luz María's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to purchase pigs and concentrated feed to fatten and sell them, so she will get ahead with the profits because she is a single mother.

Luz is a single mother and lives with her two daughters, one is 15 and the other is 10 years old. Luz works raising pigs and selling bread. She has been doing these jobs for several years, and her daughters help her every day.

Luz needs the support of a loan to purchase pigs and concentrated feed to fatten and then sell them, so she will get ahead with the profits because she is a single mother. She dreams of building a better house in order to leave her daughters a decent place to live.
