Meylin Del Carmen
Meylin has a local convenience store. She is requesting a loan to invest into her business and be able to expand on her current stock and obtain a higher income for her family. Meylin started her business with few funds but little-by-little has managed to expand the business. Before starting the business of convenience store, Meylin embroidered traditional costumes. She is mother to four children and this is why Meylin gets up very early in the morning to attend to her business and therefore improve her family’s standard of living.
