Marleni's story

Marleni is 38 years old and married to Constantin, age 49. Their loving household also includes their two children, Omar (age 11) and Karen (age 20). They all live in a home that is made of solid materials. With the drive to work and move forward, Marleni started her own business. She sells lubricants and other auto supplies of all brands. Marleni has been in business for the past eight years. She previously sold fuel, but she states that the use of natural gas for vehicles was just starting to expand throughout the country. This opened the door for a business that could generate good earnings. She shares the duties with her husband Constantin, who has always been a great help and a permanent fixture in assisting her with making the necessary arrangements.

A commercial wholesaler is currently in the middle of a promotion that is being offered to its customers. Those who purchase 100 cases of motor oil will receive a reduced price. Marleni does not want to miss out on this opportunity since it will help to maintain her business and keep it stocked for a prolonged length of time.

As part of her future growth, Marleni wants to open another shop that is dedicated to selling and delivering tires for all types of vehicles. She is very confident that she can achieve this goal through hard work and effort. Marleni has a clean credit history and will be receiving her 19th loan. She is a member of the Board of Directors for her Communal Bank. Marleni and the other Board members work together as a close-knit group and have great responsibilities with handling the payments.

With this loan of 2,000 PEN, Marleni will be able to complement her existing capital so that she can buy 1,000 cases of lubricants for different types of vehicles.
