Bella Maria's story

Bella knows how to manage the monthly voucher she receives from the government and was able to open a small store. Her older children help her with attending the store when they return from school. Bella and her husband, who works as a seafood merchant, are able to help their family get ahead. They have three children (ages 16, 15, and 3).

Living in a periurban section of the city makes it difficult for Bella to travel so that she can restock her business, but she does not let this problem discourage her. She is requesting a loan to buy rice, sugar, and oil in order to restock her store. This will allow her to continue providing a better life for her children and to make improvements to her home.
