Melina Narcisa's story

Melina is 29 and lives in the area known as "Duran". She began her snack business five years ago and started by preparing snacks for the family. Upon realizing that she was doing a good job she decided to set up a snack shop.

She works alone from 6:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The difficulty she is up against is delinquency and delivery of the products, since she has no vehicle to get around.

She is married and her husband works as an electric engineer. The loan she is requesting is to buy goods such as flour, sugar, eggs, meat, an oven, etc.

Her dream is to expand the business by setting up other shops in the town.
