A loan of $1,475 helped to buy sweatshirts, shorts, t-shirts and socks.

Luz Albany's story

Luz is a single mother to two children. She has helped them to get ahead with a lot of effort and dedication.

At 29 years old, Luz works as an independent businesswoman selling fast food. Her business is in a street in the city centre that has many passers-by. Luz works alone from Monday to Saturday, from 10am until 6pm. She has managed to earn enough money to support her household during the seven years that she has been working independently.

With a desire to complement her income, Luz would like to entire the market with a different type of product, particularly sweatshirts, shorts, t-shirts and socks. She is doing this in order to take advantage of the start of the school year, when these products are in high demand. This loan will be used to start this work.

Luz tells us that her greatest desire is to set up her new business well and to be more financially stable in order to provide her children with better well-being and a better upbringing.
