Mariana's story

Mariana lives in the Villa Salomé area, located 25 minutes from the city center. She lives with her two children, one who is already financially independent and a younger one who is in high school.

Mariana works selling a variety of food such as "silpanchos" [thinly sliced breaded meat] and grilled meat, in a space she has in her house. She opens her store only at night, and they have a number of customers. She has worked with Emprender since 2005 and over the years has shown herself to be a responsible client who makes her payments punctually.

Now she is requesting a loan to buy ingredients such as rice, noodles, and potatoes to make her delicious dishes. She is very happy about being given this opportunity. Mariana's dream is to be able to see her children become professionals.
