Luz Marina's story

Luz Marina, 50, is an entrepreneur who wants to start her own business making arepas [a flat, round, unleavened patty made of cornmeal or flour which can be grilled, baked, boiled, or fried] to sell; she will buy it from a friend. Years ago Luz Marina worked with her family in an arepa business so she has experience in this line of work. Luz Marina wants to buy the essentials needed to set up an arepa factory which consists of two grills, a gas stove, two large pots, a mill and a motorcycle for home deliveries. With this Luz Marina will improve her family’s quality of life.
