Luz Aracelly's story

Luz grows marigolds which is a medicinal plant and thanks to this work generates income to contribute towards household expenses because her husband’s salary is insufficient to cover all household expenses. She sells her plants to a natural products store in the city and gets income for her work that way and thanks to her customer placing very good orders with her she’s managed to grow with her business.

However, winter has brought some difficulties so she’s looking for a loan so that she will be able to buy manure, insecticide and fungicide to move her crops forward despite the winter that’s being experienced. Her crops will be of good quality this way and she will continue receiving very good income for it allowing her to provide her husband and children with a good quality of life in their home. Her dream is to increase her crops to sell larger amounts and generate employment for those most in need.
