Lilian Jazmin
Lilian is a young, determined woman who is 22 years old. She sells seasoned chicken in order to financially support the costs of her home and to raise her three children, one of whom is in primary school, and the two youngest who are not yet old enough to go to school. Lilian only studied until ninth grade, which has made it hard for her to get a job. However she still works hard with her husband, a young man who works as an assistant mason: a pretty difficult job.

Lilian has sold chickens for about 11 years, because she has been helping her mother sell them in the market since she was 12 years old. Lilian also worked as an assistant housekeeper until she decided to start her own business.

With this loan you will be helping the client buy a certain amount of chickens, since she buys them live and sells them seasoned. Right now it is difficult for her to get the money to continue working.

In the future Lilian wants to have a farm where she can have chickens to fatten and laying hens, so she can save to have her own home, as she currently do not live in her own home.

Lilian de 22 años de edad, es una joven muy luchadora, ella se dedica a la venta de pollos aliñados, esto con el objetivo de apoyar económicamente en los gastos del hogar y sacar adelante a sus tres hijos, uno de ellos estudia educación básica, los dos más pequeños aun no tienen la edad. Lilian solo estudio hasta noveno grado, lo que le hace difícil conseguir empleo, pero esto no es motivo para que trabaje fuerte junto a su esposo, un joven que se dedica a trabajar como ayudante de albañil, un trabajo bastante pesado.

Lilian tiene aproximadamente once años de dedicarse a la venta de pollos, ya que desde que tenía 12 años apoyaba a su madre a vender en el mercado. Lilian también trabajaba como ayudante de oficios domésticos, hasta que decidió poner su propio negocio.

Con el préstamo, se le estará ayudando a la clienta para que pueda comprar cierta cantidad de pollos ya que los compra vivos y lo venden aliñado. Pero por el momento, se le hace difícil conseguir el dinero para seguir trabajando.

En un futuro Lilian quiere tener una granja en donde pueda tener pollo de engorde y gallina ponedora, y así ahorrar para tener su propia casa, ya que por el momento no viven en lo propio.
