Maribel is a young entrepreneur and visionary. In her community, she is known as being charismatic and obliging. At the age of 22, she wants to start her own business. Her goal is to be self-employed and to generate an income to support her family. For this reason, she is starting a stationery store close to an educational institution. The advantage of this location will help her to strengthen her business from the beginning. She already has a photocopier and a small display case, but she needs to buy a laminating machine, a display case, and wholesale stock (notebooks, pens, coloured pencils, erasers, poster board, tape, and other items). This is why she is requesting this loan; this will allow her to start her own business. With this, she hopes to achieve good sales results and make a good income. Maribel plans to establish her business bit by bit. In the near future she wants to expand in order to improve her sales and profitability. This way, she will be able to offer her family better living conditions.
