Bertha Carmelina's story

Bertha Carmelina, age 43, has 6 children—2 adults and 2 minors. Four of her daughters help her out with her small restaurant. Ms. Bertha also makes clothing during her spare time. With these two businesses, she has always managed to help her children get ahead in life. She needs a 9,000 GTQ loan to invest in her eatery because she has had several food orders these past few months. Her dream is to see all her children become professionals.
