Francisca is a widow who has 3 children: Rolando, age 26 (employed), Sergio, age 33 (employed), and Francisca, age 28 (homemaker). She started this business out of financial necessity since she did not have sufficient income to both raise her children and pay for their educational expenses. She started making candy and selling it from home 15 years ago. She now sells it in nearby communities, thus concurrently broadening her client-base and her profits.

She needs a loan of $775.00 USD, which she will repay in 6 months, in order to purchase the ingredients necessary to make her candy. With your help, Francisca will get ahead in life.
