Leyla Marina's story

Leyla Marina A., 25, lives in the San José neighborhood in the San Lorenzo Valle. She is in a common law marriage with Edwin Antonio N.. They do not have children. Her house is very pretty, and she lives very comfortably. Her husband works in his own transportation business.

Leyla has a mini market in her house. She has had this business for five years. It is in a good location, which is well traveled by many people. It is going very well for her, but she wants it to go better.

She is asking for a loan to buy more merchandise to stock.

A few days ago her aunt died, and she is very sad. Her dream is to have a bigger business.
