A loan of $1,175 helped to buy a photocopier and paper products to diversify the items she can offer her customers.


Luz Marina's story

Luz Maria has had a general store for 20 years, and with it has financially supported her three children. Little by little she has pulled together this business with a lot of effort, and this has allowed her to generate income so that her children can have a better quality of life and more economic opportunities to get ahead in life.

Although the store offer home goods, her customers have been asking Luz Maria to ask for a loan to buy a photocopier and paper products to be able to diversity what she can offer her customers.

Her dream is to continue working in her store and to be able to increase her sales to be able to further support her family financially and improve their quality of life.
