Luchando Por La Vida Group's story

These three successful entrepreneurs work in different sectors. One of them is Yara, 20 years old, who works by selling food and second-hand clothing in her community. She has performed this work for the past two years as a way to support her family. She is requesting this loan to buy raw materials such as rice, beans, sugar, cooking oil, beef, chicken, and vegetables. She will also use a bit of the loan for her secondary business of selling second-hand clothing. One of her goals is to buy second-hand clothing in bulk.

Cándido has sold food from his home for a year. He is married and has two children. María Estevana works by making tortillas and sweet corn tamales. She also has a small sewing studio.
