View original language description ↓
Melinda is an affectionate mother, who works everyday selling firewood from home. The most accustomed way for cooking in her town is with firewood. She stores the firewood she commercializes at home in a little space that she put up for such work. She is filled with optimism and happiness with her job because it lets her work from home, while she still is there for the needs of her family. She wants to start selling for products, and also buy firewood in bulk. By doing this, she will have more financial returns, and thus, increase her six children’s quality of life. She is soliciting a loan that will help her achieve this purpose and she is grateful in advance for your help in collaborating with her goals.
