Melnyk Hshley's story

Melnyk lives in the small village of El Cerro de Marcovia with her son. She is a hard-working woman who is committed to her business. She sells new clothes and women's handbags. She started her business two years ago. Melnyk makes her sales in the community in which she lives and on weekends she travels to the communities of Los Llanitos and Renacer where she has many customers who order clothes and handbags from her. She sells her products on credit.

Melnyk will use her loan to buy merchandise as she has a lot of orders but doesn't have enough capital to stock up with merchandise. She needs the profits from her business to cover her household expenses.
