A loan of $1,000 helped fabrics, thread.

Janine Marilu's story

Janine is 23 years old and has worked with her mother since she was little, helping her to sew and sell food. She now sells food outside of her house and also spends time doing sewing work.

One of the difficulties is the streets because they were recently finished, as well as the delinquency. She has two young twins who are 2 years and 6 months old. They do not go to school yet.

Janine dreams of having a business that can provide her with her own house and financial stability, as her children will incur more expenses as they get older. For now, she wants the loan to buy fabrics and thread to continue with her business.
