Mariela's story

Mariela is a 31 year old lady who is married to Ramiro and works from home. She owns a neighborhood store and is currently living in the southern part of Cochabamba, approximately 6km away from the city. She and her husband are renting and have 2 children that depend on them. The goal is to purchase merchandise for the store because she does not have enough stock for sale. She has few products to sell and by purchasing more merchandise she will have more sales and one way or the other she'll be able to fulfill the needs of the family. Her husband is currently unemployed and we share a part of her story with all of you for your consideration.
