Lucia's story

Lucia sells clothes, vegetables and ice-cream. She is 36 years old and lives in Rosario de San Francisco Gotera canton with her husband, Walter, and their children, Eugenia, 14, and Walter, 8. She sells ice-cream from home and sells clothes and vegetables in the San Miguel market.

Lucia and her husband are in the process of making some home improvements so they are asking for a loan to buy building materials and supplies to erect a wall along the perimeter of their house which will improve their home’s conditions and provide more security so that they will be more secure if any problem should arise.

She aspires to a larger, more comfortable house with better conditions where her children can grow up.
