Lilian Agripina's story

Lilian Agripina is 54 years old, married, and has three children. Two of her children are independent adults and the youngest is an 18-year-old high school student. Her husband is a merchant. They live in their own home. Lilian and her family reside in Sosote, which is known for its cuisine, especially longaniza and other sausages made from the internal organs of the pig. The people from this area are known for making products out of palm ivory.

Lilian Agripina has a small shop where she sells fruits, but she was not able to continue this business during the pandemic because there was no transportation. She now sells bed sheets and dishes because it is easier to sell these products. Lilian Agripina conducts her sales through social networks and WhatsApp. Her customers include relatives, friends, and neighbors. She offers her products on credit and collects payments every week. The health crisis was very bad at first because she was not able to sell, but now that things are gradually restarting, she is able to generate income.

This new loan will be used to buy bed sheets in various styles, colors, and designs. Her dream is to have a shop where she can sell bed sheets and other merchandise. She also hopes that her family will remain in good health.
