Adriana Elizet's story

Adriana is unemployed at present and is busy with her home and caring for her family, which is composed of her husband and her one son, who is 7 years old. Adriana, with her enterprising spirit and desire for achievement and to get ahead, was motivated to search for alternatives that would permit her to achieve that. As a result, she decided to create her own business, an Internet cafe and miscellany store.

She already has her location – it belongs to her husband – but she needs the assistance of a loan to purchase 4 computers, desks, chairs, and a selection of paper and other supplies. She also needs to prepare the space. In this manner, she can launch her productive project, where she will work Monday through Sunday from 9:00 am until 10:00 pm. Adriana wants to seize the advantage she has, having no competition in the sector where her business will exist.

Adriana is conscious of the fact that in order to advance her business, she must work with enterprise, and discipline, key to making it profitable and survive over time. She wishes to generate an economic stability that will allow her to help her husband with daily sustenance, providing the basic necessities for the home, and leading to a better quality of life and wellbeing.
