Flor De Lys's story

Flor is married and has four children. In order to have a better economic situation in the household, she decided to set up her own business so that she, along with her husband, can contribute financially to the household.

This was how she decided to set up an internet café, taking advantage of the opportunities in the area. Thanks to the effort she has made, she has managed to keep it going and to generate good income for the household.

Since she has had her business, her four children have been able to have a better quality of education, attending better schools. For this reason, Flor is always aiming for her business to continue growing, so that someday they can also access a university education.
Now that she has a new opportunity, she hopes to take advantage of it. It is that she hopes to sell ice cream inside her internet café, so that she can diversify her income and also offer this service to her customers. This is why she is seeking a loan; in order to purchase the initial supply, begin to offer this service to her customers, and diversify her income.

With these new sales they will increase their household income. This way the quality of life of her husband and four children will improve considerably, allowing her to have a better financial situation that will allow them to prosper.
