A loan of $575 helped to pay school costs.

Lucia's story

Lucia is asking for this loan to pay the registration fees and to buy uniforms for her three children who go to primary school.

For one year now, Lucia has got a small shop where she sells clothing and other second-hand items. The shop is situated in her own house. This way she does not neglect her children. Her husband works for a private security company. Together they cover the household expenses.

Originally, they are from the state of Coahuila but 15 years ago they have settled in Nuevo Laredo.

They wish for their children to study for a quality education.
