A loan of $450 helped to purchase pigs.


Luz Mercedes's story

Mrs. Luz C. is a member of the communal bank named "Azoguenitas". She lives in the city of Azogues. This city is beautiful for its colonial and modern architecture. It is also well known for the cathedral church that is located on the most elevated part of the city. The people are very polite and kind. Luz is 29 years old, married, and she has 4 children who are still in school. She doesn't own a house, so they rent their space. Our client provides janitorial services in various private homes and she enjoys the business because she doesn't have a fixed schedule to follow. At home she raises chickens and pigs. She has been working with loans from the communal bank for the past year and she has come to form a great friendship with her colleagues. The funds from her loan will be used to invest in the purchase of pigs. Her goal is to have a house of her own and a business, such as a store.
