Liliana Hortencia's story

This micro-businesswoman Liliana Hortensia P. is 44 years old and married. Doña Liliana has 3 children, 2 of which are twin girls that are 23 years old. Both are studying a licence in pharmacy. Her other daughter is 27 years old and doesn't study, due to learning difficulties. Her husband doesn't work. Her dreams are to obtain an establishment where she can make better sales and remain competitive. Other wishes are to fight so that her daughter can move forward with the necessary help. Her priority is that she receives a special education and in the morning can manage by herself.

She has a general store where she sells: shorts, camisoles, socks, underwear and others. She travels to sell these products. She has had this business for 30 years. Her sisters and mother induced her to start her business so she obtained her own business. The finance will be used to obtain more variety in her products, so that Doña Liliana can offer different products. She will have to make the purchases of these products in Managua, and like this generate the money that is so necessary for her family and her contractual commitments.
