Amarilis Del Establo Group's story

Marisabel D. Fuentes is 37 years old, separated and has 2 small children - 12 and 2 years old. They are the reason for her efforts and hard work to support them in achieving their education. Marisabel is a member of the group 'Amarilis Del Establo', together with 8 equally hardworking people.

Marisabel works selling lollies and soft drinks door to door, in different places in the Carabayllo district which is the zone where she lives. She started working independently when she was very young, embroidering polos and dressmaking, and little by little saved a small capital amount which permitted her to start her lolly sale business. Upon seeing that she maD. daily sales she began trying to sell as many as she could, and in this way her business has grown as she invests more to sell more.

With this business Marisabel has been able to improve her family's circumstances, as she doesn't have the permanent support of her husband and their fathers. Her daily work covers her main necessities, especially for her small children, and in the short term will allow her to install a grocery store in her house so she can dedicate more time to her children. It is for this reason Marisabel is seeking a loan to purchase stock and merchandise to implement her business and generate better earnings which will permit her to save and arrive at her goal.
