Patricia's story

Patricia is an enterprising and vigorous woman who knows what hard work is. She makes her living selling coffee, tinto (strong Colombian style coffee), herbal teas and all kinds of drinks in the area she lives. Her greatest dream is to see her 3 children graduate and become professionals. For this she works very long hours.

She needs a loan of $2,100 to buy stock, a coffee thermos and a lamp to light her cart. She is a clear example of a woman who is not the weaker sex and someone that with the love of a mother can overcome any obstacle that life presents.
