Luz Fanny's story

Luz Fanny is a single mother and the head of the family. She is separated from the father of her son; he provides them with no financial support. Seeing the need to earn an income, Luz Fanny decided to open a store where she sells basic items like candy, soft drinks, snacks etc. She's had the store for about six years and has used the income to support her son and provide him with an education. When she started the store she didn't have much capital so couldn't buy a refrigerator. Now she is seeking a loan to buy one so she can offer her customers items that need to be kept cold such as cold cuts, cheese etc.

With this purchase Luz Fanny hopes that her business will continue to thrive and provide her with a good income so that she doesn't have to worry about money. As well she hopes that her son will have a good standard of living and access to a good education. Her dream is to have a big store and provide employment for those who most need it, and to have a stable, regular income.
