Manuela
View original language description ↓
Manuela and her husband have four daughters - 2 are in grade school, one is about to complete her university degree online, and the 4th is attending university locally. In order to supplement their income, they have turned a strategic section of their backyard into a small general store where they sell important household items. In order to stock her store, Manuela often travels to her country's capital, where she purchases a variety of items at good prices. While she travels she depends on her daughters' help running the shop and on the help of her husband who takes on independent side jobs, which is necessary to supplement their expenses and help pay their daughters' educational expenses.


Manuela is requesting a loan of $1,200 USD in order to purchase home decoratives and clothing in order to supplement the products she currently sells in her store. She is planning to repay this loan within 6 months. Together we can quickly make her dreams a reality.
