Luz Viviana's story

Luz is a single mother of a nine-year-old son. She’s currently employed as a saleswoman in a firm and to earn extra money works weekends in a stand selling snacks, soft-drinks, coffee, fried food, tamales and lunches. In this ways he earns the resources to sustain her family.

She’s an enterprising, driven, active woman who strives constantly to move her son forward. Because of this she wants to take advantage of an opportunity that’s come up to buy the stand she works in to start an independent business of her own and to manage her time and generate income on her own.

This is the reason why she’s asking for a loan to buy fixed assets (refrigerator, microwave oven, stove and shelving) and supplies in general (snacks, soft-drinks, meat, vegetables, cakes, turnovers, etc.) to start her productive project.

Luz hopes to strengthen and make her business known in order to gradually advance towards reaching her main goal of having a restaurant or a well-stocked store that will lead to higher income to give her son a better education and in future be able to enjoy better living conditions.
