Luz Amparo's story

Luz Amparo is a 51-year-old woman. She is separated from her husband and is the mother of one son. She is a determined and hard-working person who works to get herself and her family ahead in life. For approximately 38 years she has had a shop where she sells liquor and groceries. With great care she has managed to get the business well-known in the area where she lives. Every day she works hard in her business, and on the weekends she extends her business hours because there is a greater flow of people and possible customers.

The loan that she wants will be used to buy an assortment of inventory (liquor, beer, and basic household products) in order to have a greater variety and quantity of products that will allow her to meet the demand of her customers. Additionally, she wishes to settle her current loan. Her greatest dream is to grow her business, to have a larger location or to make structural improvements to her house, and to have her own place. In this way she will be able to save expenses that she can later use to support her family and improve their quality of life.
