Liliana Sonnia's story

Liliana, age 53, started her business approximately 18 years ago. She started with a small amount of money she had from the liquidation of her previous job. She decided to add to her grocery store a little bit.

She gets up at six in the morning, and she closes at night. The delinquency in the area is a difficulty for her.

She is separated from her husband. She has two children, ages 32 and 27. They have their engagements, and they live in other places.

Her goal is to be able to build a place alongside of her store to be able to establish a stationery store.
