Beatriz E. is a 45 years-old mother of four children. She is a hard working woman and her dreams of having a better life made her start working when she was only 15 years old. She started working by selling the following: stuffed potatoes, hamburgers, fruits, and other products. Once she started her family, she decided eighteen years ago to start her own small store in order to generate a stable source of income that would support her family. Beatriz starts work at five in the morning and hopes for the loan to improve and to expand her store. The income her husband makes as a mechanic does not cover the tuition costs for the higher education of her children. In order to complete her objectives, she needs $500 dollars to invest into her store’s expansion. She promises that her business will pay back the loan in a six-month period. With your support and generosity Beatriz and her family improve their lives. Believe in her because she will not disappoint you.
