Mariane Lydia's story

Mariane is 38. Her husband is a mason without steady work. The couple have two children, aged 11 and 15, both students in a public school. Mariane began her production in 2002. The current income is insufficient for covering day-to-day family expenses. Right now, she would like to develop her business with the aim of improving their living conditions. To do so, Mariane is asking for a loan enabling her to increase her stock of fabrics. For the future, she envisions acquiring a plot of land.
