Marley Martha
Marley is 51 years old and lives in the city of Cochabamba, in Cochabamba department. She is a very hard-working woman who didn't study at university because she had to work. She currently works selling raw chicken in the mornings. In the evenings she makes and sells fried chicken in her neighborhood. She lives in a rental house which has a large room where she can sell food. However, this room is in bad condition and so Marley is requesting a Kiva loan to do up the exterior and also stock up with rice, potatoes, supplies, tables and chairs so that she can grow her business and thereby sell more plates of food in the evenings. She is very grateful for the opportunity that she has to access a Kiva loan through CIDRE's financial institution.
