Marina's story

Marina is 37 years old and lives in her own home with her life partner and their three children, two girls ages 15 and 11 and a 9-year-old boy. She has sold garlic and spices for the past 14 years. She purchases them in bulk at the market and later sells them in the municipal market and in local stores. Her life partner also makes a living selling these products, but he sells them in other places. He helps Marina with the household expenses, which are great; in addition to food and clothing, they support their children so that they can study. Marina knows that her business is the best economic resource that she has, so she has decided to request a loan from FUSAI to invest in garlic and spices so that she can continue to support her household.
