Vicky T. hopes that the loan she has requested will enable her to grow her food selling business to make more profit and thus help her support her dream of rising up from all forms of poverty starting by increasing her income. Despite her poverty and the small profit of her business at the moment, Vicky believes that in time it will grow and she can give her three children (aged two to nine years old) a life that they will be most happy. She wants her children to attain the highest level of education possible to have more options to cope with life’s challenges.
