About Credit Card Lady, LLC.
Credit Card Lady, LLC(CCL) was formed by Nancy “Chiquita” Vega-Laruy in 2004 out of a natural progression from working in the insurance industry. She enjoys working with small businesses to find the most profitable solutions for their credit card processing. CCL helps business with solutions as small as a smart phone app or card reader for processing mobile payments to a Point of Sale designed for Salons, retail stores to a full featured restaurant Point of Sale with server tablets and reservation kiosks. We review recent statements to provide rate comparisons & savings, discuss the needs of the business, including any 3rd party provider software, and present solutions we believe will be the best fit. We try to minimize excessive processing fees and provide equipment free of charge whenever possible.
Chiquita was born in New York to parents who were also entrepreneurs. She has lived in California, Florida and Puerto Rico. Around 1984, Chiquita moved to the St. Louis area to work with the Anheuser-Busch Companies. In 1994, Chiquita opened her own Insurance Brokerage agency.

In 2004 she decided to sell her business and start a new adventure, opening her new brokerage, Total Merchant Services, later renamed Credit Card Lady, LLC.
