Marleni's story

Marleni is 22 years old and married to Yuri, who is 26 years old. Together as a couple they have many goals. They currently live in a wood house that they rent from one of their relatives. As a woman she leads and administers her home to keep the accounts correctly. She also works providing services like laundry and house cleaning. Yuri owns a mototaxi and travels around different streets in their district providing a taxi service. They have been working together for four years. Their priority right now is to have their own house, which they consider indespensible in starting to create their household. One of their hopes is that their children don't have the same necessities that she passed by. They plan to purchase a plot of land that is being offered. They consider this a good opportunity since in the future they plan to construct a home so that she can have her own business. This is her third loan and she promises to make her payments without difficulties. She thinks that the work within her community bank is a good way to obtain loans since there is information and constant confidence. With this loan of 2,500 nuevos soles they plan to purchase their plot of land.
