María Manuela
View original language description ↓
María Manuel and her husband had three children, all of whom are married. Despite this, she, at 60 years of age, has to care for one of her grandchildren which has kept her busy trying to make money to offer a better future to her grandson. “We are at a mature age and we must take advantage of our strengths in order to do something useful.”




For this reason María began a paper store that in the beginning sold notebooks, and little by little began to introduce new products that her customers were requesting.




Nevertheless, her products are not well-organized enough to separate one product from others, and because of this she is requesting a loan of $750, which she will repay over a period of 6 months. With this money María wants to buy some glass cases to display her Christmas products, which she’d also like to buy to be able to offer around Christmastime. With your help María and her husband will be able to help their little grandson that needs them.

Con tu ayuda María y su esposo podrán ayudar a su pequeño nieto que los necesita.
