Luz Marina's story

Luz Marina is 51 years old. She is separated and has 3 children who she strives to provide for and ensure a better future.
When she separated from her spouse she took on all the household responsibilities and has had to divide her time between caring for her children and financially providing for them.
At a friend’s suggestion, Luz Marina started a furniture making business 20 years ago which has been very successful. She is satisfied with this work because she considers it an art. Currently, she has 2 employees with whom she works Monday through Saturday from eight in the morning until eight at night.
She is requesting a loan to purchase furniture making supplies and materials. She hopes to be able to increase her productivity and fill her orders so that she can increase her income and improve her family’s quality of life.
