A loan helped to purchase fruit, cookies, sweets, chocolates, and a new cart to go out to sell.


Cruz Dolores's story

Cruz is married, her spouse works selling newspapers, and she has 3 children, of whom 2 depend on her and are studying.

Cruz works selling fruit and candies at the school in her community. She gets up every day very early to prepare for the sales and, in this way, she gets income for her family's well-being.

She needs the loan to purchase fruit, cookies, sweets, chocolates, and a new cart to go out to sell.

Cruz dreams of continuing to work and of giving her children the best.
