Marleny's story

Marleny, 38, lives with her husband and three children in their own house. For the last 20 years she has done embroidery, a skill learned from her mother. This art represents her largest source of family income. Marleny embroiders in the comfort of her home which also allows her to do her domestic chores and care for her children. As a parallel activity, she also farms to earn extra income for her household. This is her third loan with MFP. She is an active member of her group which, as time has passed, has become stronger aiming to motivate all the members to progress which motivates Marleny to work even harder. The funds requested will be used to buy thread and fabric for her embroidery as well as for natural fertilizers for her crops.
