Lizeth Amparo's story

Mrs. Lizeth is a single mother with one daughter, and she lives with her parents. She runs a corner store out of her parents home where they sell staple products and cosmetics. She is also studying at university and sells beauty products to her fellow students. Her corner store is well known in the area because there are not other options in the neighborhood, and it is well-stocked. Mrs. Lizeth will use the loan money to increase the inventory for her store like soft drinks, sweets, and cosmetics, which are currently on sale. Lizeth makes great sacrifices to both work and study and provide a better life for her daughter. Her dream is to complete her university studies, work as a professional, and improve her quality of life.
