Lilliam Del Carmen's story

Lilliam, a humble lady who completed secondary school, is now a single mother. She is separated and raises her children on her own. She went through a rough patch when her youngest child suffered an accident which warranted a surgical procedure. Though she felt very much alone at that moment, she thanks God that they managed to overcome it. She is full of fighting spirit and asks now for a loan to invest in her shop, where she sells basic grains, meat, tortillas, school supplies, spices, and fizzy drinks, among others. She needs to continuously renew her supply of these products in order to keep her shop going and to support her children.
