A loan of $800 helped working capital.


Yaoska Mercedes's story

Yaoska Mercedes is a struggling single mother with one young son who depends on her. She owns a cybercafé where she works every day from 7:00 AM to 9:00 PM. She is constantly looking for new ways to get ahead with her son and has had this business for two years, despite the difficulties she’s faced with having to repair some equipment. She is very happy with the work she does, because if it wasn’t for it, she would not be able afford to eat every day. She will use the money from this loan to buy new computers and other needed products.
