Diana Sofia's story

Diana is a person who has had to face much adversity in her life; however, her desire to get ahead has allowed her to overcome the difficulties and continue making progress along with her husband. Diana is an industrial technician who, owing to the scarcity of work opportunities, had to start her own business in order to generate the necessary income for contributing to the upkeep of her household. Diana is married and along with her husband has been able to get ahead and overcome the many difficulties her life has presented to her. Diana devotes her time to staffing her gift shop where she also sells stationery supplies, and thanks to this she generates income for her household. In hopes of servicing needs related to the school year, when consumption of paper products goes up considerably, Diana aspires to a loan which may allow her the possibility of making purchases of paper products so she may have a good inventory for the beginning of the school year. Diana hopes that in this way her income continues to increase and that she may continue offering her husband a better quality of life. Diana dreams of being able to expand her business and move into a larger location where she may offer her customers a greater variety of products.
