Luz Adriana's story

Luz Adriana is 42 years old. She has faced many difficult times but with much strength and the love of her family, she has been able to pick herself up and keep fighting her battles in life. A year ago she and husband became separated. This continues to be a difficult situation that has greatly affected her two children ages 13 and 15. Since the separation, Luz's ex-husband stopped helping her with their children's expenses, so she is solely responsible for the well-being of her home.

Luz worked for several years in a beauty salon, where she learned the trade. Later, she perfected her skills in a beauty academy. Currently, Luz runs her own beauty salon from her home. With this business she hopes to increase her earnings and be able to provide her children with a good education. For this reason, Luz is requesting a loan: to invest in the purchase of beauty products, a stylist's desk, a mirror, and a hair-washing station.
