A loan helped to buy towels, sheets, clothing and other products to have more variety to offer to her clients.

Luz Elena's story

Luz is 57 years old and lives in the municipality of Monteria. She’s a single mother who has a beautiful daughter she loves very much. Raising them has been very challenging, but it also has made her a strong, confident, and capable woman who would do anything for her family.

Being head of a family has taught her a lot. One of the most important things is to be independent, so that’s the reason why she decided to start selling products for personal use and thanks to her commitment and hard work, now her family has a better quality of life.

She lives in a town very affected by the war, so her business means a lot to her because it’s the opportunity she has to give to her family a good future. She’s asking for a loan to buy towels, sheets, clothing, and other products to have more variety to offer to her clients.

Support this single mother and loan now.
