Luz Mary's story

Luz Mary has run her own general store for many years, which always allowed her to earn enough income for her home. However, because of increased violence in the area, she had to close her business five years ago and began working at other things. Now she's starting up the store again and, with the help of her husband, has been able to overcome the many obstacles that come with starting a business. Thanks to strong sales, and seeking to overcome her lack of access to capital, Luz Mary is seeking a loan to buy a glass showcase and stock her store with daily needs items to meet the demands of her customers. Her dream is to have a bigger and bigger store with more and more items, increasing the variety she can offer. Furthermore, she aims to provide a better quality of life for her family.
