Marelis's story

Marelis is 51 years old and lives in the municipality of San Bernardo del Viento. She has a son who means the world to her and she has been a great mother, very caring and responsible. She has a miscellaneous store, and she’s been doing well thanks to her amazing determination and how disciplined she is, because her main goal is to give an excellent life to her family. She would like to improve her business to make it sustainable and more profitable since they live in a town with much poverty, where there are not many job opportunities. She’s asking for a loan to buy more variety of products like costumes and toys and also milk to sell in her store.
