Belgica
With 42,000 pesos, Bélgica will be able to purchase merchandise to increase her little store's inventory. Four years ago Bélgica opened her store as a way to avoid being in the house all day since her husband wanted her to stay home and care for the children. So she opened the store in the mornings while the children were in school and in the afternoons she stayed at home to care for them.

She never imagined that the store would become a source of support for her family. A year ago Bélgica was widowed all of a sudden when her husband was killed in an accident. Bélgica has three children who are 9, 7, and 4 years old in addition to raising a child of her husband's who is 16 years old. This sudden change has not been easy for Bélgica but with the support and prayers of her family and friends, she has gotten ahead.

Con 42,000 pesos Belgica podrá comprar mercancía para aumentar el inventario de su tiendecita. Hace cuatro años que Bélgica abrió su tiendecita como una manera de no estar todo el día en casa, ya que su esposo prefería que ella se quedara en casa cuidando a los niños. Así que ella abría la tienda en las mañanas, mientras los niños estaban en la escuela y en las tardes se quedaba en casa cuidándoles.
Nunca imaginó que esta tienda sería el medio de sustento para su familia. Belgica enviudó de manera repentina hace un año, cuando su esposo murió en un accidente. Belgica tiene tres hijos de 9, 7 y cuatro años, además está criando a un hijo de su esposo de 16 años.
Este cambio repentino no ha sido fácil para Bélgica, pero con el apoyo y oración de su familia y amigos ha salido adelante.
