A loan of $400 helped to pay for her infant daughter's medical treatment.

Marleni's story

Marleni is 32 years old. She and her husband recently welcomed into the world their first daughter six months ago. Unfortunately, their daughter was born with hip dysplasia, which means that her hip socket is abnormally formed and can cause crippling lameness and joint pain if left untreated. Marleni is requesting the loan in order to pay for her daughter’s medical treatment.

Marleni currently works for a business, but is planning to open a store selling children’s clothes. She wants to have the new business open in time for Christmas, and hopes to leverage her previous retail experience working in a clothing store while she was in school.

Marleni is receiving an individual loan as a member of the village bank "Las Mercedes de Kataniray" in Cusco, which is located close to the Incan ruins of Macchu Picchu in the Andean mountains. The bank is in its fourth cycle with Asociación Arariwa.
