Paula Lileth
Paula Lileth has been the owner of a general store for the past 4 years, which she established due to the fact that the neighborhood in which she lives did not have a store. She began selling fruits and vegetables, which as time passed generated profits and that is how she decided to start selling products such as coffee, bread, eggs, etc, and other items that people consume. She says that she began with 2 pounds of each item.

Her business has grown due to good administration and the service that she provides people. The store is attended to by her entire family, that is, herself, her two children, and her husband. Currently Paula needs a loan given that she hopes to open another store and asks that the FAPE provide her a loan.
