A loan of $900 helped to buy corn, rice, beans, sugar, and plastic merchandise such as: bowls, glasses, and plates, among others.


Lissette Mercedes's story

Lissette works selling basic products and plastics. She lives with her family: her husband who is 46 years old, two children who are 19 and 25 years old, and her granddaughter, who is 2 years old. All of them depend on the income from the business. This activity she has performed for 10 years. She performs her work every day from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. with her husband and one child.

The loan she requires will allow her to invest in the purchase of corn, rice, beans, and sugar, and in plastic merchandise such as: bowls, glasses, and plates, among others. This will help her to strengthen her business and satisfy the necessities of her customers.

Her dream is to continue helping her son in his studies to be a professional.
