A loan of $625 helped to buy apples, grapes, soft drinks, candy and cookies.

Marina Isabel's story

Marina Isabel owns a business selling natural fruit drinks, soft drinks, cold water, fruit, candy and cookies. She leaves her house at 5am and goes to one of the markets to buy her produce for making drinks. She opens for business at 6:30am and finishes at 5:00pm.

She has been doing this work for 20 years in order to help her husband support the household. She is the mother of four children, of whom three are in school.

She is applying for a loan that she will use to buy apples, grapes, soft drinks, shaved ice, candy and cookies to sell them to all her customers. This type of fruit is in greater demand during the Christmas season.

Marina has improved her and her family's standard of living, as with the income obtained as a result of the loan provided by Ceprodel, she has renovated her modest home, providing more comfort for her family. Her dream is to buy a truck for her business.
