A loan of $1,900 helped buy paint and make improvements to her house.


Luz Maria's story

Luz Maria is a client of Kubo Financiero, and this is her story.

She is 69 years old, married, and has children who have now left home. For 37 years she has run a restaurant selling local dishes. Every day she cooks nine different casseroles. She spends the whole day working in the kitchen, and the money she earns has paid for a house, the university education of her children, and provided her with financial stability.

Luz Maria is seeking a loan to paint and make improvements to her house. She is considered to be a very responsible person who likes to keep her promises.
