Lucy Marina's story

Lucy, age 31, studied up to sixth grade. She left school because there were conflicts in her family, and they couldn't help her with her studies any longer. Currently, she is a single mother, because her ex-husband abandoned her, leaving her with 3 children as well as her mother whom she also has in her home. Because of her age, she can't be alone for too long, and thus Lucy tries to keep her close to take care of her as she did in the past.

Lucy has worked for the past six years for the same employer as a household employee. She decided to work in order to bring in extra income for her family, to give her children what she was not able to receive from her parents.

She also sells products by catalog in order to have an income in addition to her regular job, and she runs a mini-store with basic goods in order to feed her family. The store is operated from her home and attended by her children when they get out of school. She needs to travel 10 minutes by bus to her workplace, and she is a person who is very dedicated to her family.

Lucy needs the loan to buy one dozen pairs of pants, one of shirts, and underwear and shoes for both men and women. She is doing this with the aim of increaing her cash income with the sale of these products.

Lucy dreams of being able to build one more room in her home, so that her children can have more space to spend time together.
