Marleny's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy more grains and groceries to stock up and to buy a television to distract her clients.


Marleny's story

Marleny is 50 years old and lives in the municipality of San Rafael. She’s a widowed woman who has a daughter, and she hasn’t had an easy life. Losing her husband was the hardest thing she has ever had to go through, but she’s been strong for her family, and she’s very proud of what she has accomplished.

She always wanted to be independent and to have her own business, and she made that dream come true with hard work and sacrifice, and now she’s very motivated. She runs a little store, and she’s very talented at this, and that’s why she’s been doing well. She lives in a post-conflict zone so it hasn’t been easy, but she’s brave and resilient. She’s asking for a loan to buy more grains and groceries to stock up and to buy a television to distract her clients.

Support this brave mother and loan now.
