A loan of $850 helped to buy basic staples to stock her store.


Luz Adriana's story

Luz Adriana’s married and has two children who are 6 and 10 years old. Because the income her husband generated was insufficient to meet all household expenses she decided to open her own business so that she could contribute economically to the family while still being able to watch her children. This is how she set up a general store at home where she stocks basic staples for her customers and thanks to this her family’s quality of life has been improving. She hopes to be able to overcome her home’s economic difficulties.

The greatest opportunity this business has afforded her is to be able to provide her children with access to a better quality education and this is why she works hard every day so that it will continue providing her family with better possibilities. Aiming at increasing the variety of products she has in stock, Luz Adriana is looking for financing to buy basic staple items and thus offer more variety to her customers.

Her greatest dream is to move the business forward so that she can provide a better quality of life for her family and to have better financial wherewithal for their support. In addition, she hopes in future that it will be a source of income that will lead to her reaching her greatest dream: to get a house of her own for her family.
