A loan of $800 helped to buy eggs, basic grains, oil, sugar, etc.


Luz Del Carmen's story

Luz is a very friendly, hard-working, responsible person who lives in her own home together with her husband and grandchildren. Her business is a store which is doing well. She has been running it for a number of years. She uses the profits that she makes from her sales to cover some of her household expenses.

Luz is requesting this loan to buy eggs, basic grains, oil, sugar, etc. with which to stock her business as she sometimes finds herself without enough merchandise and therefore loses sales. She would like to improve her stock levels so that she doesn't lose customers through a lack of goods. This will make her better income and she will be able to provide her family with better financial stability.
