Luz Edith's story

Luz Edith is a hardworking person who has always wanted to help her husband generate household income. The main reason is because they have two children that they want to provide the best possible education for and a stable future. Because Luz Edith comes from a family with few resources she’s worked hard most of her life to gradually reach her dreams. Luz Edith does not want her children to have to go through the same circumstances and that’s why she wants to give them the best possible education so that they will be able to work at something that will generate better income than what she and her husband are able to earn.

Luz Edith, at the age of 39, works in nearby families’ houses and as an independent activity wants to buy a sow that can produce piglets for her to then sell and generate income in the future. Since Luz Edith does not earn much money and her husband doesn’t either, she’s seeking a loan that will allow her to buy the pig and feed for the first few days. Luz Edith states that with this opportunity to buy a pig and generate extra income in the future her life as well as her children’s and her husband’s will improve enormously.
