A loan of $1,575 helped to buy stock merchandise for her store.

Luz Elena's story

Luz, 39, is in a common law relationship with her spouse and mother of three children. She’s spent her working life employed in various firms selling all kinds of merchandise especially paper goods in order to add to family income. She’s been unemployed for the last three years and because of the lack of employment opportunities she’s found it hard to get a job which is why she decided to once again start selling merchandise and getting good results.

Thanks to this she opened a business of her own in a shopping center four months ago. She sells items like general stationery goods there at retail. She’s managed thus to earn enough income to contribute to her home’s economy.

She’s a hardworking, enterprising, active woman with a strong wish to continue making progress. This motivates her to request a loan to buy an assortment of stock merchandise (markers, notebooks, pencils, ribbons, etc.) in order to have a wide variety of goods on-hand to offer customers thus meeting their needs which will then be reflected in higher sales and income earned.

Luz dreams with making her business grow, to make it well-known and to expand her portfolio of services so that she will attain market recognition generating the opportunity of offering her family favorable economic stability to improve living conditions and provide better schooling for her children.
