Lilia had the strength to keep fighting after she was widowed. At 54 years of age she had to think about surviving. She did what she could to establish her business of warehousing drinks. She was very lucky because she had no competition in her sector. She works alone starting very early in the morning. As the business is located in her own house, it makes everything easier.
Among her business activities is selling liquids like colas and juices and ice cream. These are the same things she wishes to buy in order to increase her business. That is why she is requesting a loan.
Her children are adults, and she is proud of them. They always help her as much as they can.
In order to improve her income she dreams of buying a taxi. She would rent it to a cooperative in the Duran sector, which is where she has lived for a long time.
Lilia tuvo fuerzas para seguir luchando luego de quedarse viuda, y a sus 54 años tuvo que pensar en subsistir, por lo cual hizo lo posible para poner su Depósito de Bebidas. Tuvo mucha suerte ya que en el sector no tuvo competencia. El trabajo lo realiza sola desde muy temprano, y como está ubicado en su propia casa se le facilita todo.
Dentro de sus actividades ella realiza la venta de líquidos como colas, jugos helados que es lo mismo que desea comprar para incrementar su negocio, para ello aplicará para un préstamo. Sus hijos que ya son mayores de edad se sienten orgullosos y siempre la apoyan en todo cuanto pueden.
Para mejorar sus ingresos ella sueña comprarse un taxi y alquilarlo en una cooperativa dentro del sector de Duran que es donde ha vivido muchos años.
