Marleny's story

At the age of 48 Marleny is an enterprising woman who, after her separation, decided to fend for herself and to move forward with her 2 daughters. Today one of her daughters is married and the other helps her mother in all of her projects. Currently, her goal is to have a steady income so Marleny wants to set up a business from where to sell fast foods. For the past 5 years she has been working for various other people in this field and she has acquired the experience she needs to set up her own business.

Marleny wants to purchase a stand from where to sell foods and ingredients used in the preparation of these foods. To this end she requests a loan to make these purchases, as she does not currently have the necessary capital to undertake this project. She dreams of having stable finances, to position her business, and to have a better quality of life.
