A loan of $525 helped to buy shoes from a catalog to then sell.

Olía Marina's story

Olía Marina C. J. is married to Jorge Márquez Gutiérrez, with whom she has three children. One of their children is already independent, but two are still their dependents - Elver (15) and Estefani Joanna (13), who are high school students.

She has requested the loan to invest in the purchase of shoes by the brand ‘Andrea, Terra e Impulso’ from a catalog. She has been in this business for six months and she says that it is working out well and she uses it to support her husband with the household income.

She started the business with her own creativity in order to have her own money to use to provide her dependent children with the necessities.

What she wants most is to have her own business which she can later depend on and use to continue supporting her children who are studying and so that they can succeed in the future.
