Luz Marina's story

Luz was a housewife dedicated to her home and to her children, who has always loved the art of cooking and she attended a variety of classes and workshops as a hobby.

When her husband retired, Luz decided to set her own business with the desire to keep herself busy and obtain a source of income. For the last eight months she has been the owner of a fast-food business, she obtained the premises thanks to the fact that a friend was selling it and she saw a great opportunity there. She works together with her husband who has been her right-hand man in everything, and the business has made them stronger as a couple. In addition, she generated two jobs which have been fundamental to the success of the business. Her dream is to leave her children a legacy and have a more stable income.

Luz works from 3:00 pm to 10:00 pm and in the morning she dedicates her time to what makes her most proud, her role as a mother. In these times, Luz needs money to buy an industrial oven, to install an extractor fan and make some improvements to the premises, this will allow her to attract more customers to the business and improve their sales. She dreams of having a large business with good credit, hence why she is tirelessly fighting to achieve this.
