Luz María's story

Doña Luz María, age 55, is a widow and has been a business owner for 22 years. She makes maxi dresses. Her main customers are from places abroad such as Panama, Costa Rica, El Salvador, and Honduras. She says that her market consists of 18 established customers.


Luz María came to CEPRODEL to request a new loan so that she can buy raw materials. She currently has a large order and needs additional supplies for her business. She will buy silk by the case and dacron fabric. Luz María believes this loan will help her provide better service and do a better job in her work. As a result, she will improve her quality of life and continue to receive recognition from abroad for her handmade products.
