Marizabel Mireya
Marizabel started life as a businesswoman 6 years ago, after her brother helped by giving her the initial capital to start her business. As time passed, the business has grown from then until today. Now Marizabel has a small grocery store in the Fortín neighborhood where she lives. Her store is well-stocked and offers a variety of products such as rice, sugar, and other staple foods. Marizabel does not manage the store alone, because her husband helps her either in the store or by traveling to different areas to sell merchandise. Because she has 4 children, there is always someone available to help her after they come home from school. Marizabel needs some working capital to be able to purchase merchandise, so that she will be able to increase her sales and improve her home. For this reason, she is asking for a loan.
