A loan of $500 helped to buy sodas, candy and cookies.

Lucia Del Carmen's story

Lucia, 46, is a single mother of two children aged 30 and 14.

She continues on with her school snack bar located in a study center.

The loans she has asked for have been very useful for investing in the business. With this loan she will do the same as this is the only way of survival for her and her children.

She will buy sodas, candy and cookies in order to improve the inventory of her business.

The income will be used for her younger son's studies which is her priority.
