Luz Mery's story

Luz Mery is a person who has always been noted for being very hard-working, and for wanting to offer her family a better quality of life. Luz Mery is married and the mother of two children, to whom she has always wanted to provide the best quality of life possible; they are her motivation for working hard in her business every day.

Luz Mery has been a hairdresser for nine years, which she learned by taking courses in beauty academies. Approximately two years ago, when she was still employed in a beauty salon, she decided to go independent and set up her own business, so she could have greater freedom and better household income.

This was how Luz Mery began setting up her own beauty salon, where she offers a very good service. Thanks to this she has been able to attract a large number of customers. Due to the adversity she has had to face, it has been very difficult for Luz Mery to keep her business going. However, her fighting spirit and desire to succeed have allowed her to overcome the difficulties and continue moving forward with her business.

Luz Mery is seeking a loan that will enable her to purchase accessories such as chairs, wash units, brushes and other items, to better equip her beauty salon.

Luz Mery hopes that this way her monthly income will not be impacted in order to get these accessories. She also hopes that her income will subsequently increase considerably, as she will be able to offer her customers better service. Luz Mery dreams about her business providing her with economic opportunities and allowing her to offer her two children and her husband a better quality of life.
