A loan of $750 helped to buy bags of cement.

Meliz's story

Meliz is 53 years old, she is happily married and lives with her husband in their own house in their native land. She sells sweets and rents out rooms in her house, something she has been doing for 10 years. The fact that she owns a house has been an advantage for her room renting activity. She administers the income together with her husband, and this allows them to have enough to pay for the expenses of her house every month. The key to her activity is to keep the products she needs always at hand, and to have honest tenants, since she has had some bad experiences with some tenants who were late in repaying. She considers it a privilege to have honest tenants and this encourages her to improve the structure of her house and her sweets selling activity. She is requesting the money to buy bags of cement that she will use to pave the front part of her house.
