María Yolanda
View original language description ↓
Maria Yolanda Martinez is a mother of 4 small children whose husband works for a man that sells display cases. His job, however, doesn’t provide enough income in order to feed them.



Things are getting worse as the children have been growing and have more needs, like clothes and shoes that no longer fit – in addition to school supplies that each time are growing more expensive. Due to this problem, she started to make handcrafted items to sell to her friends. However, she wasn’t making enough income to maintain her home, and therefore she started to sell fruits and vegetables out of her house for people in her neighborhood.



This is how, little by little and with a lot of heart, she is raising her children. However, the current situation is actually very difficult, since her husband hasn’t had many sales and there are still household expenses to take care of. In addition, the sales she’s had from her business have left her without any product and she needs to restock to be able to sell more. Therefore, she is asking for a loan of $375 to pay over a term of 6 months. With your help, Maria Yolanda will be able to raise her children, while stabilizing her business and the job of her husband.

María Yolanda M., es una madre de familia, de 4 pequeños hijos, y su esposo trabaja para un señor que vende vitrinas, y el trabajo no le deja suficiente como para sacar para comer. Las cosas se fueron empeorando en medida que los hijos iban creciendo y teniendo más necesidades como de ropa, los zapatos que no les quedaba, y lo útiles de la escuela que cada vez que van creciendo son más caros. Y debido a ese problema comenzó a hacer manualidades para venderlas entre sus amigas, sin embargo esto no le dejaba suficientes recursos para poder mantener el hogar, y por lo tanto empezó a vender frutas y verduras en su casa, para que los de la colonia le compren.



Así es como poco a poco y con mucho esfuerzo a sacado a sus hijos adelante. Sin embargo la situación que está pasando actualmente es muy difícil, puesto que uno de su esposo no a tenido muchas ventas y en su casa los gastos no dejan de parar y las ventas que a tenido en el negocio se le fueron totalmente y necesita volver a surtirlo para poder vender más. Por lo tanto está solicitando un crédito de US $375 para pagarlos en un plazo de 6 meses. Con tu ayuda María Yolanda, podrá sacar adelante a sus hijos, mientras se estabiliza su negocio y el trabajo de su esposo.
