Luz Mariana
Ms. Luz Mariana is 33 years old. She is pressing ahead with her business of selling used and new clothing. In some months, she has had problems with selling her products, but she credits this to people without work looking to start businesses, because selling used clothing is the easiest type to establish, and furthermore, the earnings are average.

This loan is to buy supplies now that there is demand from her customers. Her dream is to have a store in the market in Managua, from which she could sell her products wholesale.
