Lidia's story

Lidia is 41 years old and is married. She has a 3-year-old son. For 9 years she has being earning her living selling beauty products and perfumes. She now also sells snow cones and sweets, since she spends most her time at home and at the same time looking after and caring for her son. 

She has become very famous in her neighbourhood because of the excellent service she affords her customers. Her husband is working outside the city, but every week he comes to visit them and leaves Lidia merchandise to ensure that she is not in need of anything for her business. In order to meet her customers' orders she would like to buy a freezer as she is using her personal fridge for the snow cones.  

She hopes to serve more customers and grow her business in the future.
