Lucia's story

Turning her small, informal egg, arepa and snack business into a full store where she offers photocopy services -- this is Lucia's great dream. She is a humble but hardworking 61-year-old woman who still does not have a lot of resources. She uses what she has to launch and build a promising future for herself and her family, which is formed by her husband and their three adult children.

For this reason, Lucia is fervently asking for your help, since she wants to achieve her dream at any cost and move on from having her products on a plastic table to having a well-stocked store. The money will be to buy an assortment of staple products and a copy machine to get started while regulates expenses, and then to invest in a greater assortment of products.
