A loan of $675 helped to buy charcoal.


Luz Eugenia's story

For three years Luz Eugenia has been buying and selling charcoal to different restaurants, to chicken broilers, and to all that need it. The work that she does is thanks to a friend of her father who offered her this work. From then on she has been storing the charcoal in a space at her house.

This business activity gives the needed support for Luz Eugnia and her parents, ages 87 and 97. Her parents need to continually go to doctors, which is very expensive.

Therefore, Luz Eugenia needs to buy charcoal to be able to take care of the end of the year demand. She also needs the resources to take care of her parents’ health.
