Diana Aimee
Diana Aimee R. lives in San Salvador area in the municipality of Soyapango. Everyday, she finds the courage and spirit to improve her life when she looks into the eyes of her young daughter, Marcela, who is only eight years old. Marcela is in the fourth grade and she just started learning arithmetic. Diana Aimee has fought for years to give Marcela a good life, by opening a small handicrafts business in the Soyapango market, where she sells clay products and ornamental decorations. With this handicrafts business, Diana Aimee has been able to pay the costs of her higher education and is about to graduate with a degree in public accounting from the Don Bosco University. Diana is requesting a loan to reinvest in her business and cover her various expenses and, at the same time, allow her to graduate from the university and become the example her little daughter deserves.

El ánimo y espíritu para superarse lo recibe diariamente en los ojos de su hijita Marcela, de tan solo ocho años de edad. Marcela cursa el cuarto grado y recién empieza a aprender aritmética.
