A loan of $575 helped to buy basic household goods.


Luz Edilma's story

Luz Edilma, 54, has dedicated a large part of her life to working. From an early age, she had to support herself and her family due to the economic conditions in the home. Her life has not been rosy, because she got married and it was not what she had imagined. After 20 years of marriage and six children, her husband abandoned her, so she had to assume responsibility for the household. Thanks to her effort and will to move forward, Luz has been able to overcome the adversities that life has presented her. Today she has a store in which she sells basic household goods and it has become the means of supporting her family. She is seeking a loan that she will invest in buying merchandise to increase her sales and earn more income. Her greatest dream is to make sure that her two minor children can get a quality education and enjoy better living conditions.
