Lucila Santos's story
Lucila, 51 years old, went to school up to the sixth grade. She is partnered and her spouse is a farmer. They have 4 children, but they are all partnered and none live with them. Lucila has had a mill for over 30 years and it was the legacy of her parents. In addition, she sells pupusas. Before, she had a store, but it was taken from her due to crime. She has the businesses in her house and they are open from early morning to 1:00 pm and she sells pupusas in the afternoon. She needs the loan to rent the land where her husband will plant corn and to do maintenance on the mill, since the hopper is broken. Previously, she got a loan and says that it was a big help. Lucila's dream is that her business continues to grow, and to have more customers to be able to earn a bit more money.
