Melba's story

Melba Argentina, 66, is a hard working, dedicated entrepreneur who started out selling prepared food and then used the profits to set up a small grocery store. Her businesses, according to her comments, have been growing gradually thanks to the loans and to her efforts; now she has better inventory and she sells more.

She has two adult children who help her in the store in their free time. Melba will use the loan to buy merchandise. Her goal is to be independent and self sufficient in her business to not have to borrow any more.
