Rubiela's story

After becoming a widow, and as a mother at the head of a home with 6 children, Rubiela decided to create her own business, selling products from a catalog to her acquaintances, neighbors, family members, and friends. Thus, in addition to being in charge of the home, she generates her own income to cover the family's basic necessities.

This enterprising woman dreams of having her own shop in which she could install a general store and generate employment.

At present, Rubiela needs a loan to buy a display case and some articles that would permit her to offer a greater variety of products and improve her income.
