Luz Ubeny's story
Luz, 35, lives in a common-law union with her partner. For the past eight years she's worked growing flowers that she sells to various flower merchants in the region. She is helped by a full-time worker, and once a week she hires the services of another person. Luz has earned a living in agriculture throughout her working years, cultivating various products, but in view of poor results and with the aim of earning higher income to support her family, she decided to look for other options and that led her to floriculture. The client is a vibrant, active, hard-working, perseverant woman. She is not discouraged in front of adversities. She states that her greatest challenge is the competition, and the low cash flow that makes it difficult to buy the composts and irrigation needed for the crops. This has led her to request the support of a loan to buy compost, irrigation, fertilizers and seeds to grow new crops and to continue caring for those already sown. She will be able to increase production in this way, with a possible increase in clientele as well. In the medium term, this will bring increased income from the sales of her products. Luz will thus have the opportunity to continue advancing towards her main goal of expanding her crops and giving them proper care, so that she can offer excellent quality products. She will also be able to offer more work, improving the quality of life and wellbeing of her family as well as that of many other people involved in all this hard work.
