A loan of $1,050 helped to buy canned goods, drinks, rice, etc.

Nelly Elizabeth's story

Nelly, age 35, started her store four years ago in an area that did not have a well-stocked store.

Thanks to God, she has not had any problems with crime. Her only issue is the dust--the streets where she lives are not paved.

She is a single mother of two children (ages 14 and 9), and she has been able to get them ahead with God's help and her own hard work every day. She wants to use this loan to buy canned goods, drinks, rice, etc.

Her goal is to be able to have a bigger and better-stocked store, and to be able to put in a floor in her home in order for her and her children to live more comfortably.
