A loan of $650 helped to buy a fast-food cart.

Luz Adriana's story

Adriana has had to fight all her life to earn enough to live. The labor market doors were closed to her because she lack an education; therefore, she has resorted to low-wage jobs to survive. For more than 10 years, she has sold fried food from a corner in her house, and her business is well known. She works every day from early morning until dusk.

Adriana has applied for a loan so that she can grow her business by buying a fast-food cart to replace the one she has now, which is in poor condition. She dreams of improving her financial situation and quality of life.
