Marcelina
Señora Marcelina U. M. lives in Tecpatan in the state of Chiapas, Mexico. She is a single mother with two children that are married. She has two school-age grandchildren that live with her and are the children of Señora Marbella.

She is requesting a loan to purchase ingredients to make tamales. She has been making tamales for some time now and says that so far things are going well. She was drawn to this activity because, in order to help her children get ahead, she needed to find a way to use her time to earn the income needed to pay her minor household expenses.. With the earnings she obtains she will buy more ingredients because she runs out when she makes large quantities of tamales. She will also use her earnings to make her loan payments on time.

Her dream is to be able to buy materials to plaster her house as well as to also continue working for as long as God grants her life and to get ahead in these times.

La señora Marcelina U. M., vive en Tecpatan Estado de Chiapas México, es madre soltera en donde tuvo dos hijos quienes ya están casados, con ella viven dos nietos que están estudiando y que son hijos de la señora Marbella.

Ella solicito el préstamo para invertirlo en la compra de ingredientes para elaboración de tamales que viene practicando desde hace tiempo y cometa que hasta el momento le va muy bien con este pequeño trabajo.

En esta actividad se inspiro ya que para sacar adelante a sus hijos tenía que tener en donde de dicar su tiempo y tener de donde provenir sus ingresos para cubrir sus pequeños gastos generados en su hogar.

Con la ganancia que va obteniendo comprar más ingredientes que se le terminan cuando helos elabora al mayoreo y le agotan, de eso mismo obtiene para ser puntal en sus pagos que se dan en el préstamo.

Su sueño es que logre comprar materiales para mandar a repellar su casa, como también seguir trabando hasta que dios le preste vida y con ellos salir adelante en estos tiempos.
