Dilia Felicita's story

Dilia is the owner of a stationery shop in Las Orquídeas. She comments that she had a grocery store before, with which she began her life as a businesswoman, but not having much experience she encountered various problems, one of which was extending a lot of credit to her customers. She thinks she didn't handle it well and so it went badly. Also the competition increased and so her sales went down, so she decided to close the shop and with the money she opened a stationery store. She has had the business for nine years and it's going better for her because there is no competition in her area. Added to all this, her son opened an Internet shop next door and so the two businesses complement one another.

She opens the stationery store every day Monday to Saturday. Her husband helps her staff the shop since he drives a truck and when he doesn't have a load he has free time. With the loan she is seeking she plans to purchase merchandise such as notebooks, papers, colored art paper, pens, construction paper and erasers among other items. With the loan she is seeking she hopes to finish the second story of her home in order to rent it out and so bring in extra income.
