Melida Concepcion's story

Malida is requesting another loan to strengthen her business inventory since she wants to take advantage of the holiday season to generate more sales and income. The borrowed funds will help her to buy corn, rice, vegetables, fruits, cheese, among other supplies to prepare and sell pupusas, bread with meat and chicken, and also chopped fruits.

The previous investment was of great help to diversify the types of dishes she serves. Also, thanks to the loan, she was able to stabilize her incomes. Her family has not changed but they currently live in better conditions. Melida mentions that the difficulty she has with her business at the moment is dust, which is caused by repairs in a shop across the street.
