Melanie Maryan's story

Melanie Maryan is 21 years old, single, and is 8 months pregnant. She lives in her relatives' house. She lives in San Agustín, which is a sector on the Tosagua Bahía road from Caráquez, where the people work in agriculture, raise animals, and work selling shrimp from pools.

At her house, Melanie Maryan works making fast food such as fruit smoothies with frozen milk, pork sandwiches, chicken, hamburgers, and sells women's clothing online and through WhatsApp. A sister helps her with the sales.

At first the health crisis was very bad for her since she was unable to sell but now, little by little, she is reactivating it so to be able to continue generating her income.

This loan is to purchase milk, fruit, sugar, meat, and bread. Her dream is to have a healthy baby and that her business continues growing.
