View original language description ↓
Patricia began her business to earn a living and provide a better quality of life for her children. She decided to begin the business as her husband’s income didn’t cover their household expenses. Over a year ago she began selling telephone equipment to her neighbors and acquaintances, little by little growing her customer base and they recommended her to others and now she earns a good income.

She needs a loan of US $500, which will be repaid in 6 months, to buy more equipment. With your help Patricia will be successful.
