Roxana Marilin's story

Roxana Marilin is 34 years old, is separated, and has two children, ages 10 and 16. They live in the city of Puerto López, which has beautiful beaches and attractions visited by many tourists. The beaches are now deserted because of the Covid-19 crisis.

She is a tenacious woman who keeps working for the good of her children despite the difficult public health situation because she is both mother and father to them. She previously worked selling sheets, curtains, towels, and comforters, but she decided to instead start making and selling desserts made from bananas.

This loan is for the purchase of ingredients for making desserts.
