A loan of $1,700 helped to buy household products for her store.


Luz Margarita's story

Luz Margarita is a hardworking person who has had to overcome great adversities in her life along with her husband, who has been instrumental in offering a good quality of life for their two children. Approximately seven years ago, Luz Margarita opened a general store so that she could contribute financially toward the household expenses since her husband's salary was insufficient. However, she was obligated to close her store about a year ago because of family difficulties. From that point she experienced major challenges.

Luz Margarita reopened her store five months ago, but she lacks the capital to offer her customers a wide variety of products. For this reason, she is now seeking the opportunity to access a loan so that she can buy household products to restock her store and provide her customers with a greater variety of products. This will increase her sales considerably. As a result, her store will continue to grow gradually and return to the successful business that it once was. Her family will also enjoy a good quality of life and greater financial opportunities to make progress.
