A loan of $1,375 helped to buy a freezer.

Luz Alba's story

Luz Alba is 59 years old. She is a resourceful and determined woman who has been engaged in caring for her house and her children throughout her life. 7 years ago she decided to set up a shop in her house in order to help her husband paying for their expenses and to provide her son with a better education.

She dreams of supplying her shop and of providing a better service to her customers; she also dreams of increasing her sales and of improving her family’s standard of living. Luz tells us that they were going through a big crisis when she opened her shop, as her husband had lost his job and their expenses increased to the point where the shop could not be sustained and they went bankrupt. They have then succeeded in reopening it with many sacrifices and now things have progressed. For this reason she is requesting a loan to buy a freezer to supply her shop with different products and increase her products range.
