Luz Maria's story

Luz is 30 years old and is married. She lives in Otavalo in the north of Ecuador. Luz describes herself as an enterprising and cheerful woman, In the photo, Luz is the woman on the left; the other two are family members who help her with her small business. She works with her family making bracelets by hand.

She has been working with Fodemi for six years. The loan that she is currently requesting is for the purchase of raw materials such as thread, wool, beads, plastic beads, etc., for increasing her production and in this way improving her sales and income. This will help her to provide her children with an education.

Her dream is to have her own premises for her business, and to be able to grow her production by having employees and being able to pay them.
