Luz Lourdes's story

Luz is a woman who like a lot of people in Nicaragua own pulperias (small grocery stores). She sells basic daily use items. She is a single mother who right now has her young son in her care. He is studying to prepare for life.

Luz continues to operate her small business in order to pay the household expenses. She is requesting a loan to invest in more products as her inventory is low. This investment would be useful as she can take advantage of the sales in the last two months of the year, which are normally very good.
