Gloria Luz's story

Mrs. Gloria Luz M. is a 35-year-old married mother of a newborn girl. Her husband is a businessman. She and her husband sell clothing and cosmetics for a living because they are both unemployed and this opportunity for self-employment has thus far constituted their source of family income. They carry out their business by taking orders from home because their customers seek their services at their house. The idea to have her own business came out of a necessity to get ahead in life, which is why she dreams of being able to offer her child a better future, remodel her house, and with a little more support, set up a store in her house so that she and her spouse can run their business directly and serve their outside customers, such as the people from the markets and from the home sector.
