Luz Estella's story

Luz Estella, 55, is a woman with big plans for life, and she has fought and will keep fighting to make them a reality. With her discipline, she has accomplished a lot. She started a business in her home selling basic goods, and for nine months she has sold fast food on weekends. She works daily with one of her sisters, who takes care of the store while she works at her fast food cart. Her greatest dream is to be able to move her businesses out of her home and to be able to create sources of employment that will allow her to benefit other families in her area. Currently she is applying for a loan that she will use to stock her store and her fast food business, with the aim of increasing her sales and improving her quality of life.
