Lidia Evangelina
View original language description ↓
Lidia Mendoza is the mother of two kids who are 15 and 8. Unfortunately, she was widowed some time ago, and she was left to care for her children, especially the one who has cerebral palsy. She needs to give him all of her support and to pay for his treatments and therapies. This is why she does extra work cleaning houses and sells shoes in the afternoons.


However, the roof is failing in the place where she sells shoes, and her products will soon be unprotected. This is why she is requesting a credit of $1,125, which she is willing to repay in 6 months. With this money, she will be able to buy a used motorcycle so a family member can help her collect from her clients, and she will also buy more merchandise so she can have a better cash flow for her business. With your help, Lidia will be able to pay her children's expenses.
