Dora Luz's story

Dora Luz is a young thirty-one year old mother. She lives in Laureles Norte, a neighbourhood that is a bit dangerous.

She is a hard-working woman who is attempting to make some progress, together with her family. This is why she spends all day walking the streets to sell coffee, bread and pastries. She does this so her children can study and make do by themselves. Her husband is a bricklayer and he helps her to cover household expenses.

The loan that she is requesting is to begin constructing an exterior wall for their home that will provide her children with greater security and stability.
