A loan of $1,000 helped to buy perfumes, body crèmes, and accessories for resale so she can one day open her own shop.


Luz Edid's story

Luz is a hardworking and charismatic woman. During the day, she works as a domestic employee at private homes. A year ago she also began selling merchandise such as lotions, clothing, and accessories. She learned about this business by working with her sister who has been in this trade for many years.

Luz wants to invest this loan in the purchase of merchandise in bulk such as perfumes, body crèmes, accessories, and clothing. By having a wider variety of products, she will be able to satisfy the tastes and needs of her customers. In the end, she will be able to increase her earnings. Her dream is to open a shop and hire employees. This would enable her to move forward and generate higher profits so that she can provide a better quality of life for her family.
