Luz Fatima's story

Luz Fatima has been characterized as a person who has always sought a better life for her family. Luz lives with her husband of about 13 years, and started her business in a shop selling confectionery goods and beer.

Luz Fatima went through many hardships in her life, and she doesn't want her family to have go through the same hardships.

The business has had very good sales, so Luz Fatima has been able to share the household duties with her husband.

Because she does not have much capital, her business does not have much variety. Her customers have asked for products that she does not have in her store, which is why losing customers little by little. In an effort to change this Luz Fatima wants to buy more varied goods for her business, which requires the purchase of merchandise. However, she does not have enough money to make these purchases so she hopes that a loan will give her the opportunity to access the purchase of confectionery goods and beer to fill her general store, and thus be able to meet all the needs of her customers.

Luz Fatima hopes that with the purchase of these products, her customers will increase considerably, because they will find more products which meet their needs. Luz Fatima dreams that she and her husband can have a better quality of life and economic stability.
