A loan of $600 helped to fix the roof of her workshop.


Lilliana's story

Lilliana is 45 years old. She is a hard-working, tenacious, entrepreneurial woman and this is her third loan from Fundación Mujer. Lilliana is separated. She tells us that she has already signed her divorce papers and has gradually started growing again as a person. She tells us that things have been very difficult but she has gradually moved on for the sake of her three children. Lilliana has several sewing machines. She bought some of them with loans from Fundación Mujer. She bought the others with the savings that she made from her business. She has a small workshop in her home which needs remodeling. Lilliana wakes up early, gets her children ready and drops them at school. She returns home and does her housework. Lilliana's goal is to improve herself and get her children ahead in life. With this loan, Lilliana will fix the roof of her workshop. Owing to the leaks, she cannot work peacefully and she is afraid that her merchandise will get wet. Her workshop is large and in good condition.
