Heyssel Lissette's story

Heyssel E. L. is a young, 20-year-old single mother who hails from Bluefields. She has a two-year-old son. For the past two years, Heyssel has owned a local store, where she sells grains, sodas, and various other products that allow her to provide for herself and her son.

Still, she doesn't have enough money to diversify the products she sells, and sometimes she loses clients because she doesn't have what they are looking for. This is why she needs this loan to buy the following: three boxes of eggs ($40 per box), 92 kilos of rice ($47 for 46 kilos), 92 kilos of flour ($49 for 46 kilos), 2 barrels of oil ($32 per barrel), 3 boxes of La Lechera milk ($50 per box), 5 dozen Maggi soupls ($3 per dozen), and 3 boxes of laundry detergent ($12 per box).
