Luz Cecilia's story

Fighting every day, putting bread on the table, moving forward, and being economically independent, are the objectives set by Cecilia.

She is a warrior of a thousand battles, aged 40 years old, who through her business has managed to improve her quality of life and allowed her to dream of a better present and a big future. This motivates her to work with much more effort, because she firmly believes in her abilities, in her opportunities and that you can achieve every one of your dreams.

For this, she is requesting a loan to buy women's clothing, such as blouses and blue jeans, to improve stock, sales and revenues of her retail trade business in textiles products.
