Luz Mery's story

Luz Mery has had a life marked by a lack of opportunities. She is trained as a secretary but had a very hard time finding a job, so she decided to open up her own business to be able to cover her housing expenses and basic necessities for her husband and 2 children. Her top priority is to improve the quality of life for her kids and to be able to give them opportunities for a good education.

Luz Mery has an internet cafe, and the income from this has been enough to cover their basic needs. With the goal of making her business more attractive for customers, she also offers services like national and international telephone calls, printing, and selling candies and other things. Because of this, her customers like her cafe. Luz Mery wants a loan to buy school products like notebooks, erasers, pencil cases and other things to increase her sales and income.

Luz Mery dreams of a business that makes more money so that she can have a better quality of life for her husband and 2 kids. She also wants to study computer repair and programming so that she can offer those services to her customers, making it more attractive, and to be able to satisfy all of her needs.
