Luz Irene's story

Luz is a great enterprising woman. She decided to start her own business of "country art" crafts [eclectic art, mostly done on wood] to create an income so that she can help economically in her homestead.

She is married and has a 7-year-old son.

Luz has an enterprising mind that allows her to get through in life in spite of the big adversities that life has given her, thanks to this, her business keeps growing which helps her own personal growth and her family's economic growth.

She learnt the activity at an academy and thanks to the quality of her work she has very good customers that guarantee her very good sales.

With the mind to make the products her customers have asked her for, Luz wants a loan to buy supplies and raw materials to make said products. This way she will be able to beat the lack of capital in her business and to continue to progress with it. Also she will have the chance to make better profit for her family and thus give them better quality of life and bigger economical opportunities to improve.
