Mónica María's story

Mónica, 41, is the mother of two children. Seven months ago, her husband committed suicide, leaving her alone with the responsibility of educating her children and providing for her family’s well-being.

Mónica’s husband made a living selling drinks and providing a place to play slot machine games. She decided to continue operating his business in order to generate the necessary resources to support her household. Consequently she is requesting a loan to purchase drinks and to maintain the on-site slot machine games. She hopes this investment will improve her quality of life and provide her children with a good education.
