Luz Yeny's story

Luz is 37 years old. She is a hardworking and thriving woman; she is always looking for different ways to continue progressing. For many years, she has made a living working in the clothing industry. She learned about her trade through experience and observation, and little by little perfected her technique and grew her knowledge about the practice. This motivated her to open her own workshop, a small space in the her house. With her savings, she bought her first machine. She works alone every day, but on certain occasions she receives support from someone, depending on the number of orders she has. She has managed to generate enough money to pay for her household expenses. The loan she is requesting is to support her in the strengthening of her work. With the money, she will buy a sewing machine to speed up her production process, and therefore be able to take on more orders. This will allow her to generate more income. She will also buy sewing products, like fabric, thread, and needles to supply her workshop. Luz says that her biggest challenge is the competition in the market; however, this motivates her to continue giving the best service and fighting for the dream, the accrediation of her business becoming a reality. This will allow her to generate more employment opportunities, and to better her quality of life, along with the people that help her work.
