A loan of $700 helped to buy bicycle accessories to sell.


Marlene Beatriz's story

Marlene is 24 years old. She lives with her two sisters, with whom she works to support their household. She studies at the university and has the dream of being a better person. Similarly, she works in her own business, where she sells accessories and repair parts for bicycles, and which Marlene as well as her sisters try to sustain. Marlene is applying for a loan so that she can buy a larger quantity of parts such as tires, rims, and chains, and at the same time to buy accessories such as lights, decorations, and other items, for which they have many customers, especially among young people whose hobby is decorating their bicycles.
