Nely lives in the 18 de Marzo zone of Santa Cruz with her husband and 1-year-old daughter. She runs a small general store from her home, and in the evening, she also serves meals. Her shop is several years old, but she has only been serving dinner for about a year. So far, it's going well. She has asked for a loan so that she can buy more merchandise for her shop and groceries for food preparation. Because her shop is the only one in the neighbourhood, Nely is quite well known, and she is is thankful for the confidence her customers have in her.
