Small Business Saves Widow’s Family

After her husband died, Lizeth had no way to provide and she couldn't get loan from bank to start small business. Operation Blessing provided the capital to help her start a pinata business. Read Transcript


Reporter: IT HAD BEEN A

NIGHT FILLED WITH LAUGHTER

AND HOPE.

THEY WERE FINISHING PLANS TO

START THEIR OWN FAMILY

BUSINESS.

BUT THE NEXT MORNING?

MY HUSBAND DIED.

I THOUGHT IT WAS A

NIGHTMARE.

I THOUGHT, THIS CAN'T BE

HAPPENING.

I ASKED GOD, WHAT

HAPPENED TO US?

WHAT DID WE DO TO DESERVE

THIS?

Reporter: AFTER HER

HUSBAND DIED, THE BANK LOAN

TO START THE NEW BUSINESS

FELL THROUGH.

THE FAMILY GREW DESPERATE.

THAT DAY WE CRIED BECAUSE

WE HAD ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO

EAT.

ONLY LEMONS TO MAKE A

LEMONADE.

THAT WAS OUR LUNCH AND

DINNER THAT DAY.

Reporter: SHE BEGAN

CLEANING, WASHING, AND

COOKING FOR NEIGHBORS.

THEY PAID HER WITH FOOD.

I TRIED NOT TO BREAK DOWN

IN FRONT OF THE BOYS, SINCE

I KNEW THEY DREW STRENGTH

FROM ME.

I ASKED GOD FOR STRENGTH AND

FAITH.

Reporter: A NEIGHBOR

TOLD HER ABOUT "OPERATION

BLESSING."

A FEW DAYS LATER, WE TALKED

TO HER AND OFFERED TO HELP.

OUR DREAM WAS ONE DAY WE

COULD ESTABLISH A BUSINESS.

"OPERATION BLESSING" CAME AT

JUST THE RIGHT MOMENT.

Reporter: WE PROVIDED

HER WITH EVERYTHING SHE

NEEDED TO START THE SMALL

BUSINESS.

IT WAS A GREAT JOY TO SEE

HOW GOD ANSWERED OUR PRAYERS

SO QUICKLY.

Reporter: PEOPLE COME

FROM FAR AWAY TO BUY THEIR

PIÑATAS, SO THE BUSINESS IS

VERY SUCCESSFUL.

NOW SHE MAKES MORE THAN

ENOUGH MONEY TO PROVIDE A

GOOD LIFE FOR HER BOYS.

MY DREAMS CAME TRUE AT

THE RIGHT MOMENT, AND I

BLESS YOU WITH ALL OF MY

HEART.

I HOPE YOU WILL HELP OTHER

PEOPLE LIKE US, TOO.

THANKS, "OPERATION

BLESSING," FOR THE

HELP YOU

GAVE TO MY MOM.

THAT IS A GREAT BLESSING.

YOU ARE THE BEST OF THE

BEST.
