A loan of $650 helped to purchase various catalogue items to sell.

Marina's story

Marina P. M. is a 64-year-old woman who normally lives by herself in a rented house in Goicoechea, San Jose. At the moment, Marina is responsible for the care of her granddaughter.

Marina has a business selling various catalogue products in her community; she has been involved in this line of work for the past twenty years. Going door to door, she offers potential clients the opportunity to browse a magazine full of a range of retail products, from portable barbecues, to clothing items. She plans to use this loan to increase her working capital and to purchase products for resale.

Marina is an experienced client of Fundacion Mujer. She has been approved for numerous loans in the past and has a proven track record of punctual repayments. The loan consultant that has been working with Marina most recently describes her as a responsible entrepreneurial and an excellent client overall.

Marina would like to be able to put on a bazaar in her house where potential clients with various desires could come and peruse the products she has to offer. Another goal is to earn enough income and savings to purchase her own house. Marina says the fact that she does not own her house is an obstacle in her life.

For this loan, Marina is applying for a relatively small amount because she is afraid of holding large amounts of debt that she might not be able to repay.
