A loan of $825 helped to buy ingredients to make "buñuelos" (doughnuts).


Mary Luz's story

At the age of 21, Mary Luz is an indefatigable fighter who works cheerfully to provide a better future for her 11-month-old son. Luckily, she has her parents' support since they help her with the business. She works every day making and selling "buñuelos" (doughnuts), and even though her earnings aren't high Mary Luz dreams about having a great business that is recognized by customers and acquaintances. Mary Luz is currently in need of a loan to invest in her business. She needs to buy ingredients such as flour, cheese, oil, eggs and other items to make the buñuelos. If she buys larger volumes she can cut costs and increase her income, which will improve her baby's lifestyle.
