Melba Esperanza's story

Melba is applying for a loan because she needs capital to invest in her store. She has also made this decision because the institution gives her easy payment terms and facilitates transactions. The money from the loan will be used to buy cooking oil, eggs, basic grains, beverages, soap and other basic products to increast her store's inventory.

She says her previous loan helped her strengthen her business and the results were as she had expected. She bought inventory for the store wholesale so the cost was less and she could offer her customers a wider variety of products. After the investment her sales and profits improved since she sold her products at affordable prices.

Her family group remains unchanged and her economic conditions have improved.
