Marcelina's story

At the age of 58, Marcelina is the mother of three children and wife of Obdulio. She’s very committed to her family and with many years of hard work succeeded in building her house. She sells clothes in various parts of the zone. She’s started to work again because she had some health problems that forced her to rest for more than five months. She currently works hard to help support her family economically. However, seeing that her sales are being well-received, she’s motivated to start selling shoes; her customers are requesting them and their suggestions have always worked. She plans to buy clothes at wholesale. Among the most requested items are shirts and blouses and she has very good taste to satisfy her buyers. Her tenth loan motivates her to continue working and renew one of favorite values: punctuality. She will use the 2,000 soles to buy shirts, blouses, shorts and Bermuda shorts at wholesale.
