Luz Missehell's story

Luz Missehell, age 26, is single and lives with relatives in Jipijapa, a place that has been very affected by the health emergency due to Covid-19.

She is a woman who seeks the means to earn her income, and so to help her parents, who are of very limited means. Although things are difficult due to the pandemic, she continues with her business. She has a stationery store at her house.

At first, the situation was difficult for her, because she could not open her business, but later she was able to open and to take advantage of school starting. Although sales are not what they were in prior years, at least with the sales she manages to earn something, and to continue hoping for better days.

This loan is to buy notebooks, pens, and other school supplies.
