A loan of $800 helped to purchase wholesale cosmetics for her second business.


Maribel's story

Maribel is thirty-two years old and single. She has four children, aged five, seven, twelve, and seventeen. She sells food and cosmetics. She lives in the Guapuru neighborhood. This loan is her first with Emprender. Maribel will use this loan to purchase cosmetics, which is her second business, and in that way increase her working capital. The lack of working capital is the reason she is requesting this loan. Maribel faces challenges in her business such as competition and high prices. She dreams of building her own home. She is a very hardworking person who works to provide for her children by herself. She hopes that one day they will have professional careers.
