Maribel Cecilia's story

Maribel is a member of the "REAL" community bank. She lives in the Santiago district of the province and department of Cusco. Maribel is a 44-year-old single mother with three children. She both takes care of the home and works as a small trader. She is a hardworking and daring woman. She has three businesses. She started with grocery and gift shop out of her home, which still operates under her family's administration. She also has two locations where she sells clothes for babies and children, one in the Magisterio neighborhood and one in the Cusco shopping center. She is well-positioned in her three businesses and clearly knows what she is doing. She is a woman who very much wants to get ahead, and little by little she is getting there. Every 15 days she travels to Lima to pick up her merchandise, and she also goes to Bolivia, where she can find stuffed animals and baby clothes more cheaply. She is seeking this loan to buy and sell her merchandise. Maribel appreciates and thanks you for the credit being given, since it will allow her to grow and to have a better quality of life. She promises to make regular repayments to the loan in the time indicated.
