A loan of $700 helped to buy potatoes and fruit.

Soraida Lucia's story

Lucia is a woman who is separated from her husband. She has four children, ages 16, 15, 13, and 11. The children go to school. Lucia says that on Thursdays she gets up at three in the morning to go to other cities where she is able to get her merchandise cheaper. She then goes to sell at the fairs in other cities. She does this until Sunday. Mondays through Wednesdays she knits wool bags.

She will use this loan to buy her merchandise of potatoes and fruit. She puts forth great effort in order to get her children ahead. Through her business she wants to have enough money for her children to complete their education.
