Vilma
View original language description ↓
Vilma has been a mother since she was 15 years old. At that age she had to find a way to meet the needs of her first child. Together she and her partner began to plant the fields that they inherited from their parents. Now they have three children and household expenses have grown. This young couple wants to begin a parallel activity that will supplement their income. They hope to open a grocery store in the city close to the town where they live. In order to begin this business project, they are asking for your help. They will invest the money from the loan that they receive in the implementation of their store. They recognize that the urgings of youth led them to commit errors, but the responsibility of being parents and carrying the burden of the home on their shoulders has made them mature quickly. They honestly are able to assure you that with strength and dedication they will be able to move forward.
