Amalia
View original language description ↓
Amalia is divorced. She has an 8 year old son and a little daughter who is not yet a year old. She started selling shoes by catalog 2 years ago. At the time, her plan was to help her husband with the household expenses, but family problems presented themselves later, and she divorced her husband and found herself alone with full responsibility for her two children. In order to give them all that they need, Amalia has continued with her business and has incorporated cheese sales into her work, which has yielded very good results.

Moving her family ahead has required all of Amalia's effort but her love for her children motivates her to improve her business every day. She is now applying for a loan of $925 with which she will buy merchandise, with the aim to offer a wider variety of shoes to her clients. She commits to repaying the loan in 6 months. Be an important part of this business. Decide to support her.
