A loan of $2,600 helped to buy a motorbike in order to make home deliveries.


Luz Mariela's story

Luz is an extremely enterprising and determined woman. After she separated from her ex-husband, she took over all the household duties and was left to care for her two children who were, at that time, minors. She has had a grocery store for 14 years. This has enabled her to bring up her children with all the courage that only a single mother can have.

She has big plans for the future of her business and her family, this is why she struggles every day to achieve her dream of a peaceful and prosperous life.

She is asking for a loan to buy a motorcycle and make home deliveries to her customers. In this way she can provide a better service, increase her sales significantly and see this reflect positively in her income.

Her children are now adults but she has never changed the love and care that she gives them.
