Lidia Ceneyda's story

Lidia is 49 years old and lives with her father and two children who are receiving a secondary and a university education. Lidia is a strong and brave woman who has to cope with her family's health conditions, including her father who has abdominal disease and her son who suffers from seizures.

Life has not been easy for her because her husband divorced her, leaving her with all of the responsibilities, but her love for her family has motivated her to continue fighting with faith and perseverance.

Lidia started producing coffee, which she serves in the small coffee shop that she set up to better publicize her products. Lidia sees a great future for her business and wants to give it a boost, so she is requesting this funding which is focused on improving the process of making coffee and purchasing some kitchen utensils that she needs to improve the service provided in her coffee shop.

Lidia is ready to fight as much as possible for the wellbeing and health of her family.
