Luzmila's story

Luzmila is a woman who is 33 years old and makes a living selling sandwiches with the goal of raising her 7-year-old daughter alone. Luzmila has been separated for a while, but this has not prevented her from demonstrating to herself and to her little girl that she would be the provider for the family.

Luzmila started selling from her sandwich cart a year ago, during which time he has learned how to properly prepare her products. She had some family problems, and for that reason she decided to start this type of business since it was practical and all she had to do was take her cart outside her house during the afternoons and evenings.

Luzmila is happy to have good health. Up to this point she has not had any decline in health and this allows her to work harder and harder. With the support that she is provided, she will be able to buy sausages, French fries, and other products, so that she can offer her customers greater variety. Luzmila is very happy for the support she is getting. With time, she would like to increase her earnings, which will help her reach her big dream “to have her own restaurant”.
