Luz Ofelia's story

Luz is a single mother, head of household; she has two children who are 16 and 18 years of age that she’s always wanted to provide with a good quality of life and access to quality education. Because of this she works hard at her food selling business that she’s had for five years and that has allowed her to have income with which to cover household expenses and to have a good quality of life with her family. Thanks to the good quality of her products she’s captured a good number of customers and hopes to continue growing with her business.

Luz is looking for a loan that will allow her to buy an overhang to protect her business from the rain as well as to buy tables and chairs to better tend to her customers thus making her business more attractive.

In this way her sales will increase considerably because she won’t have to stop working in winter. In addition, Luz hopes that with higher income her family will have a better quality of life and she will be able to give her children the opportunity to study a university career. Her dream is to have her own eatery where she can offer employment and have better economic stability.
