A loan of $650 helped to buy clothing and seasonal goods.


Luz Edita's story

Luz is 37 years old and was born in Duran, which is where she still lives. Her husband Fredi is a merchant. She began selling clothing and seasonal goods so that she could feed her children and provide them better educational opportunities. Luz and her oldest daughter work together in her business. Her work schedule is from Monday to Saturday. Her children attend the state school near her home.


Luz says her greatest fear is dealing with thieves because a robbery would leave her without any merchandise, so she would not be able to help her husband with the debts and the family expenses. She will use the money from this loan to increase her inventory. Luz plans to buy men's clothing, women's clothing, and various items. Her dream is to establish her business and make improvements to her home.
