Marine's story

Marine is 41 years old. She is the single mother of two children, who are in school and together they live in the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra-Bolivia.

She and her family live in a home of their own, where she has adapted a space to start her own business. She has a neighborhood store where she offers basic necessities such as bread, milk, cookies, etc.

Marine works six days a week from very early until the end of the day. The fact that her business and home are in the same place, allows her to fulfill her role as a mother. An advantage it has is that she has loyal customers through good service and the variety of products she offers.

This is the first loan requested from Fundacion Sartawi and it will be used to buy a refrigerator to store perishable products and some shelves to increase the installed capacity.

She dreams of sending her children to college and growing her business.
