A loan of $1,700 helped to buy toys.


Luz Yaneth's story

Luz Yaneth is 43 years old. She is a warrior who has forged her way in life through struggles and effort. She is a mother of three children, of whom two are still minors. After a family crisis, Luz saw a need to start working. She decided to sell products from a catalog to family and friends, because due to her lack of education, many doors were closed to her in the companies where she presented her resume.

After many years and with the savings that she managed to accumulate, she took a risk and opened a stationery shop. She works daily from 7:00 in the morning until 8:00 at night.

She is applying for a loan to buy toys, taking advantage of the month of December, in which the purchase of Christmas gifts intensifies. She hopes to provide her children with the opportunity to go to university, because she is sure that this is the best gift she can offer them.
