Marlene Maribel's story

Marlene Maribel is 46 years old, a single mother, and has a 15-year-old daughter. They live in Pajan, a place of people who work in the fields and selling their products, and which has also been greatly affected by the health emergency caused by COVID-19.

She is a woman who has had to work hard so to get ahead with her daughter, more so now that, due to the pandemic, everything has gotten more difficult. It is with her work that they are getting ahead. She makes lunches at her house and then sends them to be delivered to homes or to certain work places. The quarantine affected her greatly since, for a long time, she was unable to open her retail space. Now, she is again selling and offering her delicacies to her customers.

This loan is to purchase groceries to make the food.
