Adela M. has always been a very hard-working woman: after separating from her husband she had to find an activity which would generate income but at the same time permit her to care for her children who today are 9 and 7 years old as she had no one else who could look after them. The solution was to start a business in her house selling stationery and hiring a computer. The result of this first effort was that she stocked more merchandise: additionally, she now also has a cyber cafe installed in the same location.

She is asking for a loan of $750 dollars that she will repay in 4 months to invest in her business buying merchandise. With your contributions Adela will continue generating income which will allow her to maintain her children.
