A loan of $800 helped to buy wholesale stock such as accessories, personal care items, toys, stationery and cosmetics.


Luz Marina's story

Luz is known for her charisma and her drive, and is dedicated to her family, which consists of her husband and their two children. She has made an enormous effort to provide her children with a good education.

She has always spent her working life in independent commerce. She started by selling small things such as stockings, hair decorations and orders that she received. Then she decided to adapt a space in her home for her customers. Slowly her business grew, until 6 years later it was offering a range of products such as toys, accessories and stationery items.

Luz would like to strengthen her business even more by investing the loan to buy stock wholesale, including products such as accessories, personal care items, toys, stationery and cosmetics. This will allow her to offer more variety to satisfy her customers' wants and to make a significant improvement in her sales. In addition, with the profits she makes she will be able to re-invest in the business, since her dream is to provide it with continuity and permanence over time. In this way, Luz will be able to provide her family with a better quality of life.
