Nancy Melania's story

Nancy lives with her 13-year-old son, who is currently in school. She has had a food stall near to home for some years and, with the profit she makes, she is able to cover household costs. Nancy is a feisty woman who always gives her best so that her son never needs for anything. Nancy is happy to have regular customers as her stall is in an area that has many passers-by. Nancy would like to expand the stall by buying tables, chairs and basic supplies such as rice, chicken, meat, fruit, vegetables and more so that she can vary her menu more and earn a little more money. However, she does not have enough money to invest herself so has applied to "Apoyo Integral" for a loan. This will allow her to buy the items she needs and improve her income so that she can have better financial stability.
