Libia Ines's story

Libia is married and has 9 children, for whom she has always wanted to provide a good quality of life. For this she has a business by which income for her home is generated. Along with her husband she contributes economically so in her family they can have a good quality of life. Approximately 25 years ago, she was displaced by violence along with her husband and their children. In search of better economic opportunities to get ahead and more security to live more tranquilly, she started selling soft drinks and candies and began her own business. Thanks to the effort that she has put in her business, she was able to get ahead and increase her sales more each time, until the point in which she was able to open another location to sell drinks and sweets, which her husband manages.

With her business she has been able to provide education to her children and she can even provide education for her youngest children. For this she always looks after her business and strives for her sales to increase each time to have a better quality of life. Libia is looking for a loan that will allow her to buy drinks and other products to supply her store and respond to the demand of her customers.

In this way she will continue satisfying the needs of her customers and her sales will increase considerably, allowing her to have a better income for her home and like this have a better quality of life and better economic opportunities to progress and get ahead. Her greatest dream is to see all of her children get ahead and to achieve giving them economic stability with her business.
