Lilian
View original language description ↓
Lilian is 35 years old, is married and has three children. Two of her children attend a local school and the third one is still too young to attend. However, Lilian says the two older brothers are already teaching the youngest the basics and he is already looking forward to going to school.



Lilian has been running a small general store out of her house for over 5 years. Today Lilian and her husband tend to it. This business is one of her greatest accomplishments. She always dreamed of owning a business and not having to depend on anyone else.



Lilian has been married to Leoncio for over 10 years. They both come from the city of Encarnación where they were born and raised and where they met as youngsters. Leoncio helps Lilian tending to the store in shifts and buying the merchandise at the city's municipal market.



The loan that the client is requesting will be used to purchase varied merchandise for their store. One of their suppliers is having a sale and they hope to take advantage of it since it would allow them to obtain higher earnings.

La señora Lilian tiene 35 años, vive en pareja y tiene 3 hijos, dos de sus hijos estudian en un colegio de la zona en donde viven y el mas pequeño aún no asiste a clases porque es pequeño y no posee la edad para asistir a clases; Lilian nos cuenta que a pesar de ello sus hermanos ya le enseñan cosas básicas a su hermano más chico quien está muy entusiasmado de ir ya a la escuela.



La señora cuenta con un minimercado en su domicilio propio, ella se dedica a este tipo de actividad hace más de 5 años y que hoy día es atendido por ella y su pareja. Este negocio es uno de sus mejores logros ya que toda su vida soñó con contar con su negocio propio y no depender de nadie.

El crédito que solicita el cliente es para la compra de mercaderías varias para su negocio ya que se le presento una buena oferta de uno de sus proveedores y no desea desaprovecharla, ya que esto le permitirá aumentar sus ganancias.
