Maria Marleny's story

Maria is 48 years old and lives in the municipality of Puerto Berrio. She’s a happily married woman with 2 children who are the love of her life. Her husband has provided for her, so she didn’t have a job, but after seeing her husband struggle and seeing her family's economic difficulties, she knew she had to do something to provide for her family. She knew it wasn’t going to be easy, especially in her town that is in post-conflict time where there are not many opportunities, but 6 years ago she started a food business that has made her very proud and now she can give a good life to her family. She dreams of being successful and seeing her family happy and safe.

She’s asking for a loan to buy a stove, cooking utensils and supplies to prepare fried food to increase her sales.
