A loan of $775 helps to supply her store with rice, milk, oil, and more.


Bella Eddye's story

Bella Eddye is 67 years old. Her husband died many years ago but from that relationship, she has four children who are all older in age. She lives with one of her children in Jipijapa, a place with beautiful landscapes and hard-working people, but a city that was struck hard by COVID-19.

She is a strong and hard-working woman who, despite her older age and the difficulty of her situation, has succeeded in getting ahead. She has a general store where she sells basic goods with the goal of satisfying her clientele's needs. Due to the quarantine, this work has become more difficult under the government's restrictions and her fear of getting sick. She has found the strength to carry on and has continued selling like normal with much caution for herself and her clients.

This loan will be used to supply her store with rice, milk, oil, and more. She hopes that she will receive help from a loan so she can finance her business.
