Ligia Margarita is one of the many widows who lose their way in life when they are faced with the sudden loss of their husband. She has no children for whom to keep pulling forward and is now dealing with a severe depression. With the help of her family, and more specifically of a cousin of hers, Ligia started selling clothes to give herself an occupation and a source of income.



Ligia is requesting a loan of $425 and is committed to returning the loan within 5 months. The money will allow her to purchase clothing for the fall-winter season. With your help, Ligia will be able to overcome her loss through hard work.
