A loan of $1,650 helped to buy basic household items.


Maryit Johana's story

Maryit, 32, is the single mother of two children, ages 7 and 2. She has a small store in her living room where she sells basic household items. Her family encouraged her to open her business, and today Maryit has resources to support her family.

She has applied for a loan to buy stock, which will allow her to offer her customers better service, increase earnings, and give her children a better life. She dreams of owning a mini market and providing for the well being of her children.
