Amelia's story

Amelia’s a very hardworking person who has been moving her own business forward with much effort. She started it three years ago looking for better economic conditions for her home. She used to work as an employee selling liquor and contributed her salary to help her husband cover household expenses but this was insufficient to cover all costs at home where she lives with her husband and three children who are currently attending university.

Because of this, Amelia decided to make the effort and use a little saving she had to start her own business selling liquor and thanks to her efforts she’s managed to move it forward and gradually overcome the economic difficulties that have arisen, especially the lack of capital to restock. Thanks the good sales she’s had, Amelia is looking for financing to buy liquor to stock her store with products that she’s been running out of.

In this way she will be able to overcome the problem of lack of business capital and will continue to earn income that will make it possible to continue to offer her three children access to a university education. Her dream is to have a great business through which her family can have a better quality of life and economic stability that will allow for economic progress.
