Doris Maricela's story

In a place called Las Coronas, in the city of Bahía, locals make a living in agriculture. They grow corn in the winter and most residents raise poultry.

Doris is 38 and is in a common-law marriage. She has 3 children; one is an independent adult, and two are ages 15 and 12 and are in secondary school. Her spouse is a pig merchant and farmer. Currently, Doris works selling products through Yanbal catalogues (beauty items, cosmetics, fragrances, and ladies' accessories), and assorted clothing for women, men, and children, such as blouses, pants, shirts, t-shirts, and underwear. She works every day. She makes sales door to door and by the order, collecting weekly payments. With her spouse, she also sells 100-lb sacks of rice, delivering to various areas and collecting weekly payments.

With this new loan, she will buy t-shirts, shirts, makeup, lipstick, and rice. Her dream is to have a pickup truck to take merchandise to other areas and obtain better income.
