Melania Aurora's story

Melania is a lady who's trying to get ahead alongside her children and her husband, who works as a driver. One of her children is studying and she hopes to support him all the way, until he succeeds in finding a job. Melania earns her livelihood by selling clothing and cosmetics door-to-door. She needs the loan in order to improve her home by building a boundary wall so that she'll be safer in her house, since the neighborhood has become increasingly dangerous. There are still many aspects of her house that need improving, but she hasn't been able to do that because of the lack of financial resources. She hopes to be able to accomplish that someday.
