A loan of $575 helped to purchase a washing machine.

Lilian De Jesús's story

After becoming the female head of household, Lilian began working tirelessly to improve the lives of her two children. Although she is a community mother at the Santa Bárbara Family Well-being Institute, where she is responsible for children who she provides day care services for, she was looking for a way to generate additional income that would allow her to improve her quality of life. She decided to start a laundry service.

To continue with this business and expand her number of customers, Lilian needs a loan to purchase a washing machine with a larger capacity that will allow her to wash more clothing in less time. This will allow her to be more productive and generate more income.

At 48 years old, this entrepreneur dreams of being able to offer her children the opportunity to study at university and become professionals. In order to achieve this, she works with great dedication and effort.
