Alyeris Maria's story

Alyeris is a young professional with the desire to overcome life's challenges. Thanks to the effort of her parents who supported her she became an industrial engineer, but she has not been able to use her education because it was hard to find work, which made her frustrated. It was from here that the idea was born to sell clothing, which she started with her own money and with help from her parents. She then opted for funding in order to buy more clothing and start selling silver jewellery. At the same time she has been improving her parents house, including adding a separate bedroom. Today she has a partner and a child on the way, and she is very happy.

This loan will be her sixteenth, and will be invested in her business and improving her house. With this loan she will buy construction materials in order to improve the roof and start building a wall in the back of the house. The materials she will buy in order to start the work include stone, sand, cement, iron, and zinc sheets.
