Luz Dary's story

“Charismatic” and “Hardworking” are the best words to describe Luz Dary, a person who despite the great adversities life has thrown in her path, has had the strength to continue forward and make progress with her family.

Luz Dary works as a domestic employee and contributes economically this way to her home to support her children. However, income generated is insufficient at present to cover all her household expenses.

Some time ago, Luz Dary used to farm vegetables on a parcel of land behind her house. However, due to the strong winters in the season and the little available capital she had to maintain her crops she had to close it and leave it aside for a time. Now, Luz Dary hopes that the loan will make it possible for her to buy seeds, irrigation and manure to restart her vegetable farming thus generating additional income for her family.

Luz Dary hopes that this way her income will increase considerably because she already has vegetable farming experience and she could cover more needs this way. Also, Luz Dary hopes that with higher income her daughter can access a higher quality education and better economic opportunities that will allow them to make progress more easily.
