We find Roberta, a young and talented mother, making novel decorations of miniature animals out of sheep´s wool. She does this work with extreme patience and creativity. Owing to the large number of requests for her work, she would like to obtain a loan to invest in the purchase of wool, so that she can continue knitting a greater variety of miniature decorations and fulfill the requests. With the economic benefit that she'll obtain after selling her goods, she hopes to provide well-being, tranquility and security to her small 7-year-old son Omar and to her hard-working husband, Faustino, who is a construction foreman. With your help, Roberta´s family will be able to improve their quality of life in a short time.
