Aura Lila's story

Sr. Aura is originally from Granada. She is married and has two daughters, ages 23 and 12, both of whom are studying. Aura is a merchant who manages a store. She started her business because she needed to be closer to her daughters. Aura previously sold at the market, but this required too much of her time at the expense of daughters. This business currently supports her daughters and her husband since she has no other income. She relies solely on the revenue generated from her store.

Aura is requesting a loan to buy merchandise such as rice, sugar, bread, oil, and sodas. This loan will help in a great way so that she can increase her sales and restock her inventory. Aura would like to continue working and has plans to rent out rooms to earn additional income. She is considered to be a person who has the drive to succeed so that she and her family can have a better standard of living.
