View original language description ↓

Patricia is married and has two children, one six-year-old son and one 2-year-old daughter. She started her business due to financial need, since her husband does not make enough money working as a bricklayer. She started helping a friend selling cosmetics by commission, then decided to start selling on her own and has been doing so for 5 years, which generates a higher income.

She needs a loan of US $300, which she will repay in 6 months, to stock her business and sell more products since she wishes to continue expanding it. She hopes that in the future she can also open a haberdashery in her home. With your help, Paty will accomplish her goal.
