Marlene's story

Marlene is an active and hardworking woman. She lives in the city of Pucallpa, in the Ucayali region. She is 38 years old and the mother of three children (two of them grown).

Marlene’s business is renting fishing boats in the port of Yarina Cocha. She has been a member of the “Las Tigresas” [Lady Tigers] Communal Bank for 8 years. Her first loan, for 300 soles, was used to purchase ice to chill fish that she sold at various markets. Now she is seeking a loan of 3000 soles to buy fishing supplies. Her goal is to have a grocery store, and to continue supporting the education of her children.
