Luz Marina's story

Luz Marina is 62 years old. She is a working woman with many desires to fulfill. Through sacrifice and dedication she has successfully started a tailoring business where she makes all types of outfits.

She works every day from 8:00 in the morning until 6:00 in the evening. Her biggest dream is to be able to expand her business and generate employment for women who are head of households, because of of the suffering she went through to educate her four children, when her husband died. She is aware of the difficult situation that millions of women suffer and this is why she believes that through her work she can help lighten the burden of many of them.

She is asking for a loan to buy supplies such as fabric, needles and thread in order to expand her production and improve her quality of life.
