A loan of $1,100 helped to buy cell phone minutes to resell.


Mercedes's story

Mercedes has lived with Marcial for a number of years. They have three, young, school-age children for whom they work hard to get ahead. She owns a small business, which she bought after much hard work, selling phone cards and staple items. Marcial works for a private company so that he can help with the household expenses. They live in their own house.

Mercedes wants to grow her business because it is the only way her children will be able to continue studying and grow up to be great people. She is applying for a loan to buy cell phone minutes to resell and meet customer demand.
