Luz Adilia's story

Luz Adilia is a 38-year-old woman and mother of two children who are school-aged. She lives in the town of El Sauce, where she was born and raised. Ten years ago she began her business with the little capital that she was loaned, and with the goal to have her own grocery store business where she offered general goods that would generate income to help her husband with the household expenses. Little by little it has grown and she has stocked it with an inventory of products that help attract her customers.

This Señora is very hard-working because at five in the morning she begins her work; preparing her son for school and later tending to the business as well as all the household chores. All of this is done with sacrifice in order to give her children the best education and to leave them, as an inheritance in the future, a good house so that they do not lack a roof to live under.

With the goal of continuing to stock the business with products that she doesn't currently have to attract her customers, she is asking for a loan to buy soap, rice, sugar, corn, and oil. She hopes and has faith in God that the Kiva lenders, through Ceprodel, will grant her this loan to continue working and to get ahead in life.
