Luz De Fátima's story

Luz de Fátima is 37. Since she got married and started her household, she has been a businessperson. Her business is a small café located in a high school, where she offers fast food to students and teachers.

Her day starts at 5:00am, so that she can prepare the dishes that she sells in the café at 10:00am and at 3:00pm, which is recess time.

She has worked in this occupation for four years, which has allowed her to help her husband with the household expenses and provide better living conditions to her children.

She is applying for this loan to buy chicken, sugar, fruits, rice, plantains, water and juices, with the aim of offering a greater variety of food to her customers.

She is grateful to Kiva and Ceprodel for the support they offer to small businesses who need this working capital to keep going.
