Luisa Fernanda's story

Luisa is 25 years old and is in a common-law marriage. She lives with her husband and two children, ages 10 and 22 months. She has a fifth grade education and at 14 she established her home in Tres Esquinas (Tolima). Her husband worked as a day laborer and Luisa took care of their home.

Twelve years ago they decided to come to Tame where a friend of her husband lives. He began to work as sawyer and she began working as domestic help. After some time they went to manage a farm. Two years ago, with some savings, they bought a lot in the Alto Cravo neighborhood.

Luisa took advantage of the opportunity there as there are no stores in their neighborhood. She took the initiative and opened one. Little by little her business has grown but she needs a loan to buy a variety of items and be able to earn more.

Her goal is to give her children a better future and save for her old age.
