Marlene works traveling through the streets of Ancon as she sells makeup and is a very good saleswoman which is why her products are sold quickly and has to keep restocking her products constantly. Marlene feels that her work is very profitable since thanks to it she is able to give her children the education they deserve. What she enjoys most about her work is giving advice to her customers about the products that will help their skin. Marlene has worked for 10 years in this field and says that the most difficult aspect of her job is walking around all day looking for customers. In the future she would like to set up a store where she can sell her products with more convenience. This is her second loan with MFP and is very happy to be able to get it and says that she will use all of it for her business since she wants to improve her life. She is a very happy-go-lucky member of her communal bank. With the fifteen hundred nuevos soles, she will buy more beauty products to be able to give her customers a greater variety of products for them to choose from.
