Marina Del Carmen's story

Marina del Carmen V. is 45 years old. She lives with her life partner, her daughter and her grandson in San Marcos, in San Salvador department. Marina sells accessories and cosmetics from a stall in San Marcos market. She has a lot of customers: people who live nearby and visit the market, and workers from the nearby assembly plants. Marina is famous locally for her kindness and because she always has what her customers need at affordable prices. Marina would like to continue stocking her store as she needs more and more products such as lipsticks, nail polish, clothes and accessories such as bracelets, badges and other new products. This is what led her to request a loan from INTEGRAL. She would like to grow her business and improve her own and her family's quality of life.
