Alicia
View original language description ↓
Mrs. Alicia is a hard working mother who since she got married, she has been working in the business of breeding and selling guinea pigs and agriculture. She is quite efficient in both activities thanks to the experience she has acquired year after year. She works very hard to support her dear children who along with her live in the humble small house of her parents, since her mother is sick and she has look after her. The desire of this virtuous mother is to grant her children the opportunity to finish their studies, opportunity that she never had due to the scarce economic resources of her family when she was young. She is requesting a loan to achieve her goals. She will use the capital to invest in her daily activity in order to obtain a bigger profit from selling of her small animals and she will buy fertilizers. Let's help with Alicia and her beautiful family.

Doña Alicia, es una empeñosa madre que desde que formó su familia, se dedicó por completo a la labor de crianza y comercialización de cuyes y a la agricultura, actividades que realiza eficientemente gracias a la experiencia que fue adquiriendo años tras año. Labor que desempeña con muy esfuerzo porque su esfuerzo se plasma en beneficio de sus tres queridos hijos que junto a ella viven en la humilde casita de sus padres, ya que su madre está enferma y tiene que atenderla. El deseo de esta virtuosa madre es otorgarle la oportunidad de concluir sus estudios a sus hijos, oportunidad que ella nunca tuvo por los escasos recursos económicos con los que contaba su hogar cuando era pequeña. Para concretar sus planes solicita un préstamo, capital que invertirá en su actividad diaria a fin de obtener mayores ganancias con la venta de sus animalitos y así mismo en la compra de fertilizantes y abonos. Contribuyamos con Alicia y su bella familia.
