Liliana Amparo's story

Liliana is 27 years old and is known in her district for her perseverance and her desire to move ahead in life. She currently lives with her husband and six year old boy, who are her main reasons for going out and looking for a better future.

Liliana tells us that her husband has been working in a vegetable shop for more than seven years and so she too has learnt sales techniques. With the objective of improving her income, Liliana decided to open her own shop in her home, which allows her to look after her son and do the household chores at the the same time.

Today Liliana is applying for a loan to buy stock so that she can provide customers with a wider variety of products. At the same time she hopes to improve her family's quality of life.
