Melvy's story

Mrs Melvy, was born in La Guardia on January 3rd. She is married and has 3 children. Her husband is a building contractor, and it is going very well for him, as he has many contracts due to his responsibility. Mrs Melvy works in agriculture with farmhands, sowing corn, rice and yucca. She also buys and sells citrus fruits such as oranges and achachairu. She works in Sombrerito. She has a plot of land from her parents, which they were not using--so she took advantage of the opportunity to work these lands. She sells her products in the El Torno market. She will use the money from this loan for the purchase of seeds and also to pay the workers for their work preparing the land. She is a very hard-working person and is grateful to the institution for the support offered.
