Hélène
Miss Helene K. is a young, dynamic woman and mother of a girl whose father has been missing for three years. Abandoned and on her own, she has many difficulties to overcome and much to finance: food, rent, her child\'s education, clothing, etc.

Born in 1974, she successfully completed her secondary education. She had her first professional experience in a private school. As a misfortune never happens alone, she had to put an end to that activity of teaching as her already low salary was not even paid to her.

Very bewildered but keeping her courage, as she has nobody to help her, she has undertook the trade of sweets, biscuits and chocolates with $35 which she had at her disposal. After that she received a credit of $100 she repaid. Her second credit of $200 allowed her to expand her activities to shoes and beauty products, which could bring her more income if she has possessed a more consistent working fund.

Currently, at the coming of the year end feasts, she needs $550 to buy articles, namely: womens shoes and beauty products. This will help her to grow her income and to improve her own living condition and that of her children.



Mlle Hélène K. est une jeune femme très dynamique et mère d’une fille dont le Père est introuvable depuis trois ans. Abandonnée à elle-même, elle a du mal à joindre les deux bouts : nourritures, loyer, scolarité de son enfant, habillement, etc.

Née en 1974, elle est une femme lettrée qui a terminée le second cycle de l’enseignement général. Elle a eu ses premières expériences professionnelles dans une école privée. Comme un malheur n’arrive jamais seul, elle a dû mettre fin à cette activité d’enseignante qui tourne à la mésaventure car le maigre salaire aussi ne se payait pas.
Très désemparée mais gardant son courage car n’ayant personne à lui venir en aide, elle a entrepris le commerce de bonbons , biscuits a chocolats avec $ 35 qu’elle disposait. Par la suite elle a obtenu un crédit de $ 100 qu’elle avait bien remboursé. Son second crédit de $ 200 lui a permis d’étendre ses activités à la vente de chaussures et produits de beauté qui pouvait lui rapporter si elle possédait un fonds de roulement plus consistant.

Aujourd’hui, à l’approche des fêtes de fin d’année, elle a besoin de $ 550 pour acheter les articles, notamment des chaussures de femmes et des produits de beauté en vue d’accroître ses revenus et d’améliorer ses propres conditions de vie et celles de ses enfants.
