A loan of $1,025 helped to buy colas, juices, and ice cream.


Lilia Erminia's story

Lilia had the strength to keep fighting after she was widowed. At 54 years of age she had to think about surviving. She did what she could to establish her business of warehousing drinks. She was very lucky because she had no competition in her sector. She works alone starting very early in the morning. As the business is located in her own house, it makes everything easier.

Among her business activities is selling liquids like colas and juices and ice cream. These are the same things she wishes to buy in order to increase her business. That is why she is requesting a loan.

Her children are adults, and she is proud of them. They always help her as much as they can.

In order to improve her income she dreams of buying a taxi. She would rent it to a cooperative in the Duran sector, which is where she has lived for a long time.
