Alba Luz's story

Hard work and dedication are the main qualities that distinguish Alba, a woman who has overcome difficulties and managed to succeed.

She is 61 years old, married, and has 7 children, all grown and independent. Seven years ago, she decided to open a small store, where she provides her customers with excellent attention every day. They always leave happy with their purchases. This business is how she is investing in a secure and sound future, and she has the unconditional support of her husband.

She is requesting this loan to expand the merchandise she has in stock. She plans to buy clothing for children, youth, and adults, as well as purses, stuffed animals, beauty products, and more. Her goal is to have a larger store and invest in other business. She is undoubtedly a hard-working, enterprising woman.
