Meirud Patricia's story

Meirud is 42 years old and lives in the municipality of La Union. She’s a single mother who has 2 children she loves very much. Raising them has been very challenging, but it also has made her a strong, confident and capable woman who will do anything for her family. Being the head of a family has taught Meirud a lot; one of the most important things is to be independent. That is the reason she decided to start a beauty salon. Thanks to her commitment and hard work, her family now has a better quality of life.

Meirud lives in a town very affected by the war. Her business means a lot to her because it is an opportunity to give her family a good future. Meirud is asking for a loan to buy a hair washing machine and a professional hair iron to improve her services.

Please support this single mother and loan now.
