Lidubina Ines's story

San Miguel de los Bancos is a canton with a humid, warm climate and whose people are very friendly and hard working. The canton has several tourist attractions like the viewpoint at the Inn Rio Blanco. In the canton the people are cheerful and like to enjoy all festivities, organizing concierts and popular dances.

In this canton, Lidubina, lives and has her grocery store. Lidubina is a fighting woman of 28 years old and maintains a relationship with a partner in which they have three children. Their oldest is 10 and the youngest is 1 year, 8 months. Because of her children, Lidubina fights day after day to get ahead. She has a convenience store and learned of the business while working at a store in the sector. In her store she dedicates an average of 13 hours a day. Since her husband works she does not have someone to help her in the business. She has to find a way to attend to the store personally without neglecting her young children. She requests this loan for the purpose of inverting in her business and fixing the store so that it attracts more customers. This loan will improve her earnings and her quality of life. Lidubina is thankful for the Fundacion Alternative and to Kiva for the support and this opportunity.
