Dora Matilde's story

This is Dora, 58, a single mother who lives with her daughter and a grandson. She's a charismatic, friendly, and hardworking woman. With her effort she has managed for her daughter to at least finish school.

She works raising small animals and has managed to earn some capital to get started in vegetable sales. This new undertaking has been well received, so Dora's requesting some help so she can buy bags of carrots, tomatoes, onions, hot peppers, sweet peppers, and beans.

That way she'll be able to continue with her sales and earn the income she needs to have a modest life.
