A loan of $1,200 helped to buy candy, snacks, water, soda, and cleaning supplies.


Luz's story

Luz, 67, is a person of advanced age. She lives with her daughter and grandchildren, whom she adores with all her might. Luz is a charismatic woman of strong character, modest but very hardworking. These are qualities that have made Luz an example for her whole family and the community, who see her as an admirable person.

She's going to invest the loan she's requesting from FODEMI in buying candy, snacks, water, and soda to sell, and cleaning supplies. Luz works in the public restrooms in the popular shopping center in the city of Tulcán, and selling these items generates an income for her family, whom she helps.

Luz's dream is to see her grandchildren grow up and to help her daughter, who lives with her. Luz asks God for the health to continue living and working because she likes to be useful to society and give her grandchildren, whom she loves with all her heart, what they need.
