A loan of $1,050 helped to buy paint, chairs, and cement blocks.


Marlin Del Carmen's story

Marlín is 44, and a hard-working woman who has a chicken grill at the entrance of her house. She started the business to improve her income. Now she works from 4:00pm to 11:00pm. She sells grilled chickens with rice and lentil stew every day.

She has many ambitions for continuing with her business, as it helps the family with the household expenses. That's why she wants to improve the facade of her business, to present a better appearance for her customers. With the loan, she will buy paint, chairs, and cement blocks.
