The Story of Lidia Parra: Assistance on the path to self employment

“Starting my own business has been extremely positive, both personal and professional.”

For me, starting my own business (Interactúa, a paediatric therapy centre) has been extremely positive, both on a personal and a professional level. On a professional level, this experience has allowed me to grow without being monitored by a boss who doesn’t believe in flexibility; to work with more diverse pathologies that enrich me; to enhance my knowledge and thus enable to provide training courses; and to manage my business.

I am sincerely grateful to Fundación ONCE and Inserta – not only for the grant I received but also for the support they gave me throughout the whole process, helping me at the very beginning to identify clear goals and to better focus my project. They assisted me in the development of my business plan and, once started, provided me with specific training on digital marketing and finance, which really improved my management skills.
