A loan of $500 helped to repair a vehicle.


Lidia Margarita's story

Lidia is a 53-year old woman who is married and has four children living at home, two of them studying and the other two working in a hospital. Her husband works driving a van and selling household items. Lidia and her husband have a business where they sell roasted meat in the street. Things are going well and they have many clients coming from early in the afternoon to have lunch. They also own a mill that provides some income when clients want to mill corn.

She really needs this loan to repair a vehicle that they own. Sometimes they need to run errands and go shopping, and this vehicle is of great help. The loan would allow them to cover this expense.

Lidia plans to keep expanding her business so that she can have a more stable stand and grow financially for the benefit of themselves and their clients.
