Melba Mercedes's story

Melba Mercedes R. is 45 years old and she is married. Melba has two children and they are both studying. Melba's economic activity is the making and selling of food. For more than 14 years, she has been involved in this business: she started this business for her Mother, as it was the type of business that she liked. The aims of Melba are to improve the quality of her meals every day in order to attract a variety of customers. The financing is to add to her work capital for buying rice, beans, sugar, oil, egg and curd as raw ingredients from which she makes her dishes. Melba's wish is to make sure her business is more stable and at the same time to help generate a source of employment as she needs an assistant to help with making the food.
