Luz Aira's story

Luz is a young woman of 23 years of age, to whom life has taught many important lessons. She is a single mom of a 1-year-old son, for whom she works hard each day. She hopes to provide him with a better future. The child's father does not keep up with his responsibilities, so Luz has to be a mother and a father at the same time. She worked for over five years in garment-making companies in the city of Medellín. However, six months ago, she decided to invest her savings and open a video game shop in order to spend more time with her child and achieve her dream of owning her own business.

Luz is happy that her dreams are beginning to come true and she is hopeful that her financial difficulties will become a thing of the past. Currently, she is requesting a loan in order to buy another video game so that her business will offer more of a variety and her income will increase.
