Marlene Elizabeth's story

Marlene is a woman from the country, happily married, who, together with her husband, has helped her family get ahead. With effort she was able to build her prefabricated house with the help of KIVA, and pushed her little store that is included in the Chapuel community. It is already well-known.

Marlene does everything possible to maintain supplies, but recently the products in her store have been scarce since she had to make a large payment to her daughter's school. Her daughter is thankful for the effort and love of her parents, and when she is older she wishes to repay them. But right now she helps her mother in looking for new financing to buy basic groceries, personal hygiene products, fruits and vegetables, to maintain supplies. She will be happy to look after the store when her mother is not there so the family continues progressing.
