During the early morning hours, Ricardina wakes up so that she can begin cooking for her business. Her children help her whenever they can since they are studying at the university. Ricardina took charge since her ex-husband does not help with the family expenses. Her oldest son helps with some of the expenses that he is able to pay.
The current loan Ricardina is requesting will be used to buy furniture and food supplies since she does not have the capital. She needs to expand her business a bit more in order to generate some more income so that she can continue paying for her children’s education.
