Luz Elena Del Socorro's story

Luz Elena, age 51, is a fighter. The adversities of life have not robbed her of her dreams and her desire to get ahead. She loves her family and thinks that it is the best gift that God has given her. She worked for over twelve years for a state company. She is now unemployed and tells us that the doors to the work world have been closed to her because of her age. This has motivated her to create her own business with the goal of generating an income for her household. She is requesting a loan which she will invest in getting training to make sponge cake and spreads.
