Lila is a very energetic and hard working woman. Since 2002 she works at a photography studio which offers services as photo sessions and special events filming.

She tells us that she has always worked as a photographer, but before she would work as a free-lance photographer, taking photos at events whenever she had a special request.

When her mother inherited the house where she now lives, she decided to open a studio because of its good location. Little by little, she has put showcases and photocopy machines and she has also bought filming equipment.

These are her achievements until now and she says she owes it all to her mother and to the strength her only son gives her everyday.

Her plans are now to expand her business hiring personnel to help her.

Translated from Spanish by Jimena Almendares Leistner, Kiva Volunteer.

Lila es una persona muy vivaz y trabajadora. Desde el 2002 trabaja en su estudio fotográfico donde brinda el servicio de tomar sesiones fotográficas y filmación de eventos.

Ella cuenta que siempre ha trabajado como fotógrafa, no obstante, anteriormente solo tomaba fotos en distintos eventos cuando la solicitaban.

Cuando su madre le heredo la casa donde vive actualmente fue que se animó a abrir su estudio ya que estaba bien ubicado. Poco a poco lo ha ido implementando con vitrinas y máquinas fotocopiadoras, además ha comprado un equipo de filmación.

Esos son sus logros hasta ahora, todo se lo debe a su madre y a las fuerzas que su único hijo le brinda a diario.

En sus planes esta hacer crecer su negocio contratando personal que la ayuden.
