Mariana De Jesus
Mariana, 42, lives in Libertad. She’s single and has no children to support. She started her business with a small basic staples store she’s had her entire life; she also bought a pick-up truck she uses to sell rice and vegetables.

She works in the business every day with her father. She and her father have struggled to live better. The difficulty she faces is her father’s illness despite which he goes everywhere with her to deliver merchandise and to collect payment. The only thing she wants is that her father gets better since he’s the reason for her to continue striving.

She wants to use the loan to buy vegetables, basic food items and rice to continue selling. In future, she’d like to have a large space like a minimarket to generate higher income and be able to continue with her father’s treatment.
