Meiby Orquidea's story

Meiby lives in El Transito, in the San Miguel department. She is 28 years old and lives with her husband and their two daughters aged 5 and 3. She is an archivist working in a health unit; on top of this, she and her husband have been running a repair shop for 10 years. Their main current difficulty is the lack of spare parts and tools; for this reason she is requesting a loan that she will use to buy the key items she needs for the garage to be fully operational.
This investment will help her buying the necessary tools to repair the mechanical flaws of her customers’ vehicles, thus enabling her to provide a better service.
She wishes to see her garage grow, and to enlarge it both to have a more comfortable working space and to hold a higher number of vehicles; she also wants to guarantee better living conditions to her family.
