Mirlan's story

Mirlan left the city of her birth and moved to this city 8 years ago aiming at finding employment to help her family which consists of 11 siblings and her mother who is now elderly and ill. She started out working in family homes and then someone helped her and offered her a better job selling products in the street and that’s how she started the experience. With some savings she decided to get some small work tools to start her own business selling food. Looking for a way to overcome the problem she has with capital, Mirlan is looking for a loan to buy work tools that have been gradually wearing in order to have better working conditions and to offer better meals. Her dream is to get ahead with this business and in future have a larger one with which to help her family with a good quality of life as well as to acquire a little house of her own.
