Francisca
View original language description ↓
Francisca is 47 years old and has been separated from her husband for a number of years. With her strong character, she set a good example for her three adolescent children and set them on a good path. Previously she worked at a well-known restaurant in her town, but she saw household expenses rising and her salary was insufficient to meet all her family's needs. So she decided to risk her small amount of saving and start her own business with the help of her children. Since then she has set out on the streets selling delicious cebiche, a popular regional dish. At first, the business did not appear to be too profitable, but little by little her sales grew thanks to her excellent flavor and seasoning, and she now has a long list of customers. Her dream now is to purchase a cart and enlarge her business, and for this she is requesting a loan of $350 to help her increase her income and be able to fulfill her dreams of a higher education for her children. Help Francisca and her family will prosper along with the business.

Doña Francisca de 47 años edad, separada de su esposo hace ya varios años, con su entereza y su buen ejemplo supo sacar adelante a sus hijos 3 hijos adolescentes y guiarlos por el buen camino.Anteriormente trabajaba en una cebichería reconocida de su ciudad, pero al ver que los gastos de su hogar se incrementaban y el sueldo que obtenía con este trabajo era insuficiente para cubrir las necesidades de su familia, decidió arriesgar el poco ahorrito que tenia y emprender junto a sus hijos su propio negocio, desde entonces se dispuso a salir a las calles y ofrecer su delicioso cebiche en forma ambulatoria; en un principio este negocio no parecía ser tan rentable, pero poco a poco fue creciendo gracias a su excelente sabor y sazón ya cuenta con gran cantidad de clientes.El deseo que ahora tiene doña Francisca es comprar un triciclo y ampliar su rentable negocio, para esto solicita un préstamo de 350 dólares, dinero que podrá invertir para acrecentar su negocio y así generar mayores ingresos económicos para ofrecerles sus tan deseados estudios superiores a sus hijos. “Ayudemos Francisca y su familia a prosperar con este negocio”
