A loan of $875 helped to buy charcoal in bulk.

Marlene's story

Sra. Marlene is originally from the residential area of San Carlos, which is about 15 kilometers from the town of San Jose. She has her own home that she purchased through hard work. Her current business is selling charcoal at the local market. She is in a common-law relationship with Sr. Luis, who is a chainsaw operator. They have three children who are of school age.

With the money from this loan, Sra. Marlene will buy charcoal in bulk so that she can sell it in smaller amounts. She is a hardworking and responsible person. Her wish is to see her children become professionals and good people. Marlene is grateful to Emprender for the financial support it has provided so that she can have a better quality of life.
