Buen Inicio Group's story

Marleny says that when she was young, she used to study and work in everything that she could, since she had a humble family and had to support with the household expenses.

Before the quarantine started, she used to work selling clothing. Unfortunately, she couldn’t continue with this activity once the quarantine started, so she began selling fruit outside of her house to all the local people. This helped her to gain some incomes for her family.

Nowadays, Marleny is back selling clothing on the markets. She has customers who already know her due to the quality of her products. With the loan she wants to open her own clothing store, and in the future have a boutique with all sorts of garments. With this, she will help her family and have a better quality of life.
