A loan of $1,000 helped cement and paint.

Doryz Nelly's story

Dorys, age 45, sells snacks at night. She lives with her husband in an urban zone called Orquídeas. The zone got its name because of the many flowers that were there when it was discovered. Now there is a park with these flowers.

She started her business of selling food because she wanted to have her own income so that she would not depend on someone else. She currently sells snacks at night with help from her husband. She sells rice with snacks and chicken, meat, juice, or soft drinks at a very low price. She sells the food outside of her house, and that is why she wants to refurbish her house. She wants to have more space so that her customers will be more comfortable.

She wants to use the loan to buy cement and paint to refurbish her house. In the future she wants to continue with her business. She also wants to be able to have the opportunity get out of poverty.
