Marina is a very hard-working and responsible person. She lives with her husband and a child in the Las Crucitas neighborhood of Santa Cruz de Yojoa, Cortés. She has lived there for more than 37 years. She is well-known and respected by her neighbors and acquaintances.

Her business is food sales, which she has done in a private school in her community, in Santa Cruz de Yojoa, for more than 5 years, serving all the children and teachers in the school. Marina, with much effort on her part and with the help of her older son, managed to set up a convenience store in her home serving her neighbors and people who live near her neighborhood.

She is asking for this loan to be able to invest in her business, in the purchase of rice, sugar, soft drinks, flour, instant corn masa mix, soap, milk, etc. since she wants to have more variety of products to offer her customers.

She hopes that with this loan her business will be able to supply many more people in her neighborhood and nearby locations and in this way she will create more income to improve her family's quality of life.

She hopes that her business will continue growing and to continue working with this type of loan in the future to be able to serve many more people, since it is her dream to have a substantial convenience store in the future.
