A loan of $1,025 helped invest in her businesses.

Frida Bethsabell's story

Frida Bethsabell P. Rodríguez is a 39 year old single mother. Thanks to her effort and work she has been able to give her children a better future.

Two of her children still live with her. They give her the strength and encouragement to keep going and make progress. She does this to give them a good example and to give her children a better future.

For several years she has had a fireworks business. This takes her almost all day. The business is in her house, and it has allowed her to have income to pay for the family expenses.

She has been able to save. In January of this year she was able to buy a “combi” (van), which she will be able to put to work providing public transportation.

She will use part of the money she has asked for to install a gas system in the van. She will buy materials and supplies for her fireworks business with the rest of the money.
