Marisela
Marisela is 42 years old. She is married and has two children in high school. She has had a grocery store in her home for five years. She says that she put the business in to keep an eye on her children and to help her husband with the household expenses. She says that she would have liked to study, but her parents didn’t send her to school. They lived in a town very distant from the school and they didn’t have the resources to send her. But she says that her children have been gradually teaching her reading and some writing.

She is requesting a loan from the financial institution to stock her grocery store. She will buy sugar, oil, beans, rice, ham, milk, eggs, bleach, and other items. Marisela’s dream is to buy some shelves to adequately accommodate her merchandise and to make her store a little larger. Currently, her products are displayed on some boards that her husband modified so that she would not have items on the floor. Sometimes there is not enough room for the merchandise she buys to sell to her customers. For this reason, she wants to buy shelves and enlarge her store. She says that she is very grateful to the financial institution because through the loans, she can gradually grow her grocery store business.
