Marisol's story

Marisol was born in the city of Urubamba (Cusco, Peru). She is 30 years old. She has a common-law husband, with whom she has one child. She currently lives in the same city where she was born, and she also carries out her economic activities there. She works selling fried pieces of chicken, and her sales stand is located on the street in front of her house. She goes out to sell at 5 in the evening, and she packs up at 9 at night. She has operated this business for six months already, and it is going very well for her, thanks to the effort she puts into her work. She also has a small grocery store in her home, where she sells basic necessities. The loan which Marisol needs is to buy merchandse such as bags of rice, bags of sugar, and chicken.
