She says that with her sacrifices, she has been able to establish her business and this has helped her get ahead. Lilian defines herself as a hard-worker who won't be defeated and seeks ways to improve. She says that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, her work and income have been affected, which has prevented her from meeting her obligations.
