Luz Dary's story
Luz has been working as a domestic employee in different homes all her working life, but she decided to go out on her own and start her own business 11 months ago. She used her and her husband’s savings to open a grocery store in her home and works there daily from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm, where she offers different family food products. She is a simple, humble, and hardworking woman who strives to get the family ahead. They are her main motivation. She is asking for a loan to buy inventory in quantity (dairy, meats, toiletries, pastries, sweets, soft drinks). This way she can expand her inventory of products and satisfy her family needs. This will allow her to increase her sales and income. This is how Luz wants to continue strengthening her business, growing it little by little, and get ahead with her husband and two children. She will also be able to offer them a better quality of life.
