Liliana Marcela's story

Liliana, 24, is a young person who has had to look for alternatives to get ahead. Her family is what is most important to her; she's worked hard to provide her parents and her 3 year-old child with food and shelter.

With few job opportunities, due to her lack of education, Liliana found a great opportunity to start her own business. Thanks to a friend, who taught her some skills, Liliana makes shoes and belts which she sells in the center of the city. This activity has allowed her to improve her family's living conditions. Liliana wants to increase her production capacity so that she can guarantee that her child gets an education, and that her parents can live a decent life.

For this reason, Liliana is requesting a loan to buy raw materials (leather) and supplies to make her products.
