Katherine Lisbeth's story

Katherine lives in the Playas canton. She is 31 years old. She is married and has three minor children. She decided to look for work so that her children could study. Since no one gave her the opportunity to work, she decided to collect the money that she had and open her own business. Now, her business is a stationery and novelties shop. Little by little, she grew to have an excellent clientele. Katherine gets up at 6:30 in the morning. She leaves to take her children to school, and then opens her business at 8:00 am. With the loan, she will buy perfume, jewelry, and various other items. Her goal is to be able to buy a vehicle to be able to carry out her deliveries to more distant places.
