Marcela is a client of Kubo Financiero and this is her story:

“My name is Marcela. I am 44 years old and have been married for 19 years. I have two children, ages 19 and 15. In addition, I am the youngest of six sisters. I am currently living at my parents’ house even though I have a house of my own. The truth is that my parents’ house is centrally located near my work at the flower market and also to my children’s school.

I buy and sell grasses and seasonal exotic flowers. I buy them directly from the flower producers that come from Veracruz, Tabasco, Texcoco, Puebla, Tenancingo, and Guerrero. The loan I am requesting will be used to buy more stock for my business. My main goals are to have my own shop and to help my beautiful family move forward.”
