Liliana Beatriz's story

Liliana is 27 years old and a nurse by profession. She is single and has three children (ages 11, 9, and 6). Liliana lives with her children and must work in order to raise them. She occasionally receives financial assistance from other people.

Liliana has a tailoring shop that she opened several years ago. She was motivated to start this business because she became a mother at the age of 16. Liliana says that she is dedicated full-time to her tailoring business because she was not able to obtain a job in which she could develop in her profession.

She is requesting a loan in order to expand and diversify her inventory. Liliana will buy fabrics, buttons, thread, needles, and other supplies. She hopes that her business will generate more income so that she can repay her loan installments and meet the needs of her customers.

Liliana dreams of improving her financial stability so that her children can get ahead.
