Lizbeth's story

Lizbeth is the president of Platanilla’s cooperative, located in the rural Darien province of Panama in Central America. She is a strong leader in her community and is always leading projects that benefit her beautiful town of Platanilla.

Always known for her entrepreneurial spirit, Lizbeth buys various items in the city, such as clothes, bed sheets, kitchen supplies, shoes, face masks, and art crafts, among other articles to re-sell to nearby communities of Darien. She travels around the region to offer her products and also uses WhatsApp to market her products locally.

She’s taken different, smaller loans in the past at the local community bank and has punctually paid every installment, showing Lizbeth’s responsibility and character.

With this loan, Lizbeth is aiming to grow her products portfolio and sales by investing in more products. Thus, she can provide a better quality of life to her two daughters, who she sustains by the sale of these products.

Lizbeth is a role model to women in her community, as she is a committed, hardworking and strong woman who is passionate about women's empowerment.

Thank you for empowering Lizbeth and supporting women leadership in her region!
