Adriana Patricia's story

Adriana, age 34, is the single mother of four minor children. Her biggest dream is to give them a good education and to promise them a decent family life. Thanks to the opportunity of creating her own business that God gifted her with, she got what she needed to live, to feed her children, and a house in which to live.

Adriana gets up very early to do the household chores and to send her children to school. She later travels through the neighborhoods in her area searching for customers to whom she can sell her merchandise. In this way Adriana has become a great example for millions of single women in Colombia who have to be father and mother at the same time.

She is currently requesting a loan to buy new merchandise that customers have requested from her. She hopes that with this investment her sales and income will improve.
