A loan of $1,000 helped to buy shrimp and seafood for her business.

Eiby Melissa's story

Eiby is 30 and lives with her two children. She is a single mother and lives in her own house in San Lorenzo, Valle, in southern Honduras. She has been selling seafood and shrimp for four years. Eiby's customers come to her house to buy merchandise by the pound and at wholesale. She works hard to support her family by selling seafood and shrimp; she is a good example of work and dedication.

Eiby has applied for a loan to buy more merchandise such as shrimp and seafood. She hopes to grow her business and increase her income with this loan, which will allow her to raise her standard of living and that of her family. Eiby is very happy to be working with Prisma; this is the fifth loan she has requested. Her dream is to have another house.
