A loan of $850 helped to purchase baskets to distribute arepas (dish) and purchase supplies to create the areas.


Luz Yorlady's story

Luz works for her business in the sales of arepas (traditional meal) with her husband. They distribute the arepas in small baskets in their town. With this business they generate the income necessary for the costs of their home. This has allowed them to have a better quality of life.

The greatest challenge that has always occurred in the business is the lack of capital to keep growing. Now that she has good orders from her clients, Luz is seeking a loan to purchase baskets to distribute the arepas and to purchase supplies to prepare arepas.

Her dream is to continue working in this business and continue to grow it in a way that can improve her income and thus improve the quality of life for her family.
