A loan of $1,250 helped to buy a display case.


Luz Marina's story

Luz is 38 years old and is a hardworking, active woman who has been a housewife for most of her life, caring for her husband and two children. Seven years ago she decided to start her own business, a general store in her home, in order to generate some income and help her husband. She tends to it from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm every day, selling decorations, paper goods, accessories, and other things. This way she has been able to obtain the resources she needs to provide some of her family’s needs. She is asking for this loan to buy a display case and inventory in quantity (accessories, decorations, and paper goods). This will allow her to improve her store’s image and be able to show her products in an organized manner and have a greater variety of products to satisfy her various customer desires. This will increase her sales and income. Luz says that her greatest desire is to accredit her business well and expand it so that she can provide new services such as an internet café and copy services and guarantee profitability so she can provide her family with a better quality of life and wellbeing.
