Lucia's story

Lucia H. sells basic goods that people use daily. She has a small grocery store, which she has had for 10 years and operates under the name “Yessenia”. The business is located in her house. She is married and is the mother of 2 children, of which only one still depends on herself and her husband; the other no longer lives with them. Her husband is a coffee farmer and he has a small coffee farm, since the place where they live is good for growing this crop. Lucia has been able to support her children through their education and has been able to help her husband with the household expenses. At this moment she needs the loan to buy more merchandise.
