Eiby Melissa's story

Eiby is 29 years old, she is single and she has two children who attend primary and secondary school and who are economically dependent on her. She and her family live in the community of San Lorenzo, in the south of Honduras. She has been selling fish and shrimps for 4 years.
Eiby is requesting her third loan because she wishes to buy enough products to tend to her customers who visit her shop every day to buy fish and shrimps.
Thanks to the loan Eiby will increase her earnings, hence having more products to sell to her customers.
She wishes to buy a boat and to hire some people to work for her, in order to create jobs in her community.
