A loan of $1,000 helped to renew her business permit, so that she can increase her income and one day buy her own home.

Luz Marina's story

Luz, 50, is divorced and has been working in commerce for 20 years.

She currently has two coffe-bar businesses in the city which she and her daughter run. She is in the process of renovating her business permit and transferring one of the businesses, so she is requesting a loan.

Her goal is to have her own house and larger businesses with a better corporate image so her customers will be comfortable on weekends when there is more activity. She will use the loan to pay for a new permit and to buy goods for both businesses. This will increase sales and income so she will be able to buy the house she dreams about.
