Amparo Lineth's story

Amparo is 58 years old, and is a woman that is looking to earn a living. She has worked in various forms of informal employment, on account of a lack of education. Her challenge has been to get her children ahead, in spite of the adversities she has had to face. She worked raising pigs, but the activity didn't generate enough income to live, and so she has decided to turn her house into a gaming hall at the suggestion of her neighbors. Currently, she works with the help of one of three children, while she does the household chores.
Amparo is satisfied with the activity that she is doing, since her income has improved, so now she is asking for a loan to invest in the purchase of three televisions and three Playstations, with the goal of increasing her capacity and seeing to more clients.
She dreams of increasing the quality of life of her family and reaching the equilibrium point in her business.
