A loan of $200 helped buy potatoes, chayote, yucca, tomatoes, peppers, and onions..


Lucia Margarita's story

Lucia lives with her grandparents, and has no family to care for except for them. She works selling vegetables and seafood, and she took over this business from her grandma. She has been in charge of the business for a year.

She is asking for a loan to buy vegetables and seafood: potatoes, chayote, yucca, tomatoes, peppers, onions, shrimp, and fish, to improve her inventory and expand her business. She hopes the loan will allow her to grow the business, increase earnings, and help her grandparents.
