A loan helped to buy 100 egg laying hens, feed and fertilizer for her crops, to improve her production processes.

Luz Mery's story

Luz is a tireless fighter who gives the best of herself day to day to obtain enough financial resources to put food on her table every day. Her son awaits her there, and she loves him with all her heart and aspires to giving him not only a good quality of life, but also paying for a good education for him so that he can have more opportunities to triumph and radically change the present.

This client has a agricultural business, which was born out of financial necessity. She now finds herself seeking a loan because she needs to buy 100 egg laying hens, feed and fertilizer to improve her productive processes, inventory, sales and income.
