View original language description ↓
Nora Elia is an enterprising woman who helps her husband selling cosmetics, shoes and clothes through a catalog to her her neighbors and friends. She works because what her husband earns as an electrician isn't enough to be able to pay the expenses of their two children. Her children are 11 and 8 years old and are studying in grade school. Nora Elia has worked in this business for two years and little by little has grown her customer base.

However, during the Christmas season, she has been given orders that she cannot fulfill so she's requesting a loan of $475 that she will pay back in a term of 6 months. With this money, Nora Elia will be able to buy the merchandise that her customers are requesting. In addition, she will be able to buy extra products to be able to have more of a variety to offer her customers. With your help, Nora Elia will be able to continue moving forward and growing her business at a strong rate.
