A loan of $500 helped business capital.

Melida Lisbet's story

Melida is 44 years old, and her economic activity is selling dairy products. She has been engaged in this humble activity for more than 5 years. She was inspired to begin by the desire to improve the living conditions of her children, but today they all work and help their mother as they can. Melida also works in a small school for low-income children, but her salary from this job does not give her sufficient income. She is requesting this loan with the goal of buying raw materials and continuing serving her customers. She dreams of continuing to provide a home for her children where they can sleep in peace until the morning.
