Verelisa Maribel's story

Verelisa (who prefers to be called Maribel) is from Playas. She is 37 years old and sells clothing. She started her business 12 years ago selling door-to-door. Bit by bit she saved up capital and rented a shop near the bay of the city, where she can better display her merchandise. She manages her business alone, although her daughter sometimes helps her out. Her day starts at 8am and ends at 7pm. She tells us that she hasn't had any problems with her business since the location is calm. Her husband makes and sells slippers, and their 5 children attend school. This loan will be used to purchase blouses, pants, and bathing suits. Her goal is to expand her business, keep it stocked, and help her children with their education.
