Luz Marina's story

Luz Marina has characterized herself as a very hardworking person who always looks out for the well-being of her family. Luz Marina is married and the mother of 1 son, who is the motivation for working hard every day. Luz Marina started her food service business approximately 7 years ago, and thanks to this she has been able to contribute, along with her husband, to the household income. Luz Marina is recognized in her area thanks to the good service she offers, and the good flavoring of her food.

Since the location where she currently has her food service business finds itself in a period where doing some maintenance is required, Luz Marina has aspirations that a loan will provide her with the opportunity to be able to paint the location where she sells her food, and supply her business with the provisions that she requires for the preparation of her dishes.

Luz Marina hopes that her business will be seen as more attractive by her customers, and in this way generate greater sales. Luz Marina dreams that her husband and her child can have a better quality of life, and more opportunities to progress financially. Luz Marina also dreams that her business will grow and become a large restaurant which will be able to generate a lot of employment for people in need.
