Lady Yecenia's story

Lady, a young single mother, aged 28, characterizes herself as being jovial, sociable, and extroverted. She lives with her young daughter in a room she rents in the northern part of the city because the rent is cheaper there since the father of her daughter shrugged off his responsibility. With her little one in arms, Lady undertook her business selling groceries. This work allows her to have time to care for her daughter and get the necessary resources to get ahead with her.

Lady wants to continue developing her work. For this, she is asking for help to purchase sacks of rice, sugar, flour, canned goods, detergents, and more. In this way, she will continue offering a humble life full of love to her little one.
