Lucelys del Carmen Perez is a loving mother that lives in Cartagena, Colombia, with her husband and their three children. For years, she has struggled to accomplish her dreams and joining her husband in supporting their family. Lucelys dreams to one day open a restaurant and a beauty salon, but for now, to support her family, she runs a grocery with her husband. When one of her neighbors told her about Opportunity International, she found exactly the partner she needed to improve their grocery and push her one step closer to achieving her dreams. Lucelys joined a Trust Group in her community and received a loan that she used to re-stock the business and expand it. After her investment, she has been able to spend more time with her family and is thankful to be moving closer to her goals.
