Marina Del Carmen's story

Marina del Carmen U. A. is 48 years old and lives in the San Jacinto Neighborhood, located in the capital. She lives with her husband, a hard-working man, and a daughter and son, both 18 years old, who are in school. Marina has her own business marketing flowers, and for 14 years has had a stand in the San Jacinto market. She is well known there and in demand, since Marina not only sells flowers of high quality, but makes floral arrangements for special occasions, such as weddings and baptisms. Her business has allowed her to enjoy a better life, and for this reason she requests a loan to invest even more in sales, buying larger quantities of flowers of different types, as well as baskets, ribbons, cards, and all the materials needed for floral arrangements. What Marina would like most is to serve more people and thus increase her earnings.
