Brígida Fríjida
View original language description ↓
To give her family the best of herself, Doña Brígida has found many ways to provide each person's daily bread. The skill that her mother taught her, embroidery, has served her as a way of earning a living. But this is not the only place she excels; her flavorful tastes has made her into one of the best cooks in her area and she pleases her followers with varied dishes that she offers during holidays in her community. She has developed these abilities thanks to a decision she made 12 years ago to improve her way of life and her family's economic situation. Above all, she is motivated by the desire to see her children become good men and outstanding professionals. She has great dreams of improving herself and for these she is requesting a loan of $850 to acquire materials that she will use for her embroidery and to invest in various other home-based services that she performs. She is thankful to each one of the united hearts that decide to help her.
