A loan of $825 helped to stock her store.


Luz Elena's story

Luz Elena is a 54 year old woman who has learned that things in life are earned through perspiration, that honest work always brings good rewards, and that happiness is not money, but rather tranquility that one can live by. “Even though I don’t have many comforts, I earn my keep every day.” It’s with these phrases that Luz Elena lets us know that she appreciates God for having given her the capacity to work and have good business ideas. Her neighborhood store generates her support in town and she wants to invest some money into Christmas merchandise, so she is asking for a loan to better stock her store.
