Madeleine's story

Madeleine is 28 and is a happy woman. She lives with her parents, for whom she cares. They have lived in their own home since she was born. She gets up very early every day to attend to the store that she and her parents opened when she was 12. "I am the only thing they have in life," she states. This is why she works tirelessly to offer her family everything that it needs. Her business is located in a central area so she has a steady income and good profits. Through the years, she obtained customers that always buy basic goods from her. She also sells beauty products for children, women, and men of all ages. She also makes good profits from these sales. She now wishes to keep working very carefully and to make the most of the nearing Christmas season, during which she will make good profits. This is her third credit with Microfinanzas Prisma, and she is grateful for the support being offered to her. She promises to be punctual with her payments. In her communal bank, they instill responsibility in her. Madeleine will invest the money in the purchase of basic goods, such as sacks of rice and sugar, boxes of milk, and bags of noodles.
