A loan of $1,025 helped to purchase construction materials to build a room in her house.


Mery's story

Mery is 46 years old. She makes her living selling food in one of the busy streets of the Litoral neighborhood.

This loan is Mery's first within the institution. She is going to use the loan to purchase construction materials to build a room in her house. Her reason for requesting the loan is the lack of cash for the purchase of materials.

Mery faces challenges in her business, including weather conditions and also competition from other food-sales businesses, which is causing her to have to try to reduce her costs and improve the flavor of her dishes. She is going to use her profits to buy utensils and also to expand her business so that she can attract more customers during the peak lunch and dinner hours.

Mery is a very hardworking person; she feels glad to have the opportunity provided by the granting of this loan.
