Luz Marina
Originally from Colombia, Luz moved to Miami four years ago in hopes of establishing a life in the United States. She has 14 brothers and sisters, some of whom still live in Colombia, as well as two daughters. Luz is trying to learn English, so that she can start expanding her business outside of Spanish-speaking Miami. She tries to practice English daily with her clients.

Luz has always enjoyed the work of a seamstress and has successfully earned a very small monthly contract with a company that pays her to create clothing patterns. Luz’s work requires her to travel from Miami to places such as Illinois and Pennsylvania. To save on costly train and plane tickets, Luz will use her loan to purchase a car, so that she can get around to client meetings more easily and increase the efficiency of her business.

This is Luz's first loan from ACCION USA, and while it is small, it will help her build her credit so that she can borrow more in the future.
