Lydia Yunieth
Lydia Yunieth P. Pérez is 27 years old and has 3 dependent children. She is a responsible and hardworking young woman who sells seafood door-to-door. She travels through the streets and neighboring regions where most of her customers are located. Despite the amount of walking she does every day, she enjoys her work tremendously. Her mother was previously engaged in this same business, so Lydia worked as her assistant before taking it over.

The loan she is requesting will be used as operating capital to buy shrimp, shellfish, fillets, fish, and lobsters. Her greatest hope is that her children have everything they need.
