Maria Nela
View original language description ↓
Nela lives in Batahola Norte, is married, and has two beautiful children, aged 1 and 2. She is 27 years old and has managed to own a small general store for two years now; she began her business with the severance payment from her husband’s previous job. Nela’s husband is currently unemployed, and so the family depends directly on the earnings from her business.

Nela is going to use the money loaned to her to invest more in her store so that she can increase both her sales and her clientele. Nela hopes that her business will improve every day and that she can thus contribute to her children’s future schooling and their financial stability.
