A loan of $500 helped to buy sand and blocks to finish fixing up her home.

Luz America's story

Luz is 49 years old and lives in Primavera, Duran (an area on the outskirts of the city which was originally built upon without official permission. The area has several hills, streams and lakes which are still visible as the remains of a broken ecology). Luz is single and her business is selling meals.

Luz started her business some time ago. She set up the business because there was no food business in her neighborhood. She works alone from 5.00pm to 10.00pm. With the help of this loan, she would like to buy building supplies to fix up her home, so that she can have a space for her business.
