Mercy Angelita's story

Mercy, age 23, is a young woman who has great ambition to succeed with the help of her father. They have started a business selling crabs by the tub.

She works every day removing the meat from the crabs before selling it in containers. Her main difficulties occur when crab season is closed or when the price of crabs gets expensive. With this loan, Mercy wants to buy crabs to improve her business. In the future, she wants to make improvements to her home and see that her children have what they need to get ahead.
