Melida's story

Señora Melida has dedicated almost all of her life to selling groceries in her small home store. She provides her customers with what they need for daily use. She sells rice, fresh foods, soap, juices, milk, basic grains, and much more. Her customers are her neighbors and friends that visit her.

She will use the loan to buy groceries to stock her store as her customer's demands are great and she doesn't have sufficient capital to stock it.

Her goal is to make sure her customers are satisfied with her service.
