Given this situation Erika since about a year ago, was worried and started to look for a business that would generate an extra income to help her husband.

Erika now requires a loan of $250 to be able to purchase merchandise to offer her clients and therefore increase her earnings. You can contribute to the well being of this family. You only need to help them, as they need you.
