Maria Lucelly's story

Lucelly is 59 years old and is synonymous with strength and courage, after having suffered separation from her husband. She has three children to care for. The youngest has downs syndrome and this women worked really hard to get her family ahead. She decided to ask for a loan and sell clothing, a business that does not require much time and that she can do, given her youngest son’s special needs that only she can provide for. “God has always been my greatest friend and loyal father. Thanks to his help and mercy, my children have never been in need of their daily bread.” With these words Lucelly expresses her gratitude for life because of the opportunities that God has given her to work and get her family ahead. Her greatest dream is to improve her financial situation and provide her son with a happy and dignified life. For this reason she is asking for a loan that she will use to buy merchandise and a display case to improve her business in her living room. She is hoping for a better life.
