Marcelina's story

Marcelina is a member of the Amor Divino Microfinance Institute.

She is a 60-year-old married mother with 5 children. She runs a stand at the Grau Market in which she sells a variety of grains. She buys these products at other markets, and people sell them to her at her stand as well.

Marcelina dreams of seeing her son obtain a degree and of improving her business.
