Robelyn has been operating her own retail store for more than five years and she earns well from this. Having a big family, she needs to make more efforts to provide for their needs, especially her four children. The couple have to work hard to provide their children with a better education. To improve sales, she took a new loan from GDMPC micro credit to purchase additional grocery goods to sell. In the future, Robelyn hopes to improve the general living conditions of her family.
