Helen Emerita's story

Señora Helen is 57 years old, married, and has five children who are grown and independent. Her husband is retired. They live in Calceta, a place known for the delightful peculiarity of its sweets and liquors.

Helen is a woman who, from a young age, was shown the example of working hard to get what you want by her parents. This is why, in order to provide a better future for her family, Helen makes a living by working in a restaurant with help from her husband. They tend to her customers from Monday through Saturday in a small place she leases by paying a monthly fee. Due to the gastronomic variety that she offers, they have earned their own clientele.

She will use the loan to invest in remodeling her location; to purchase chairs, tables, and pots, among other things. Her dream is to have her own business premises and to have much success.
