Marina Concepcion's story

Marina Concepcion is 42 years old and lives with her life partner and their children in their own home. She works selling tortillas and pupusas in order to pay the household bills. She has been doing this work for a number of years and has obtained excellent experience, which allows her to earn more profit. She works out of her home and has many customers because people know that everything she makes is of the best quality and at accessible prices, and also that her service is the best and the fastest. Marina is an active woman committed to her work. What she wants most in life is to achieve her dreams. For this she works very hard because she knows this is how she will achieve success. Recently the demand for her products has increased, and she does not want to disappoint her customers. She thus decided to increase her production, but needs capital to buy supplies. For this she is requesting a loan which will allow her to buy corn, beans, cheese, pork cracklings, vegetables, etc. Marina Concepcion has good payment references and is very responsible. She is grateful for the collaboration and commits to settling her debt and at the same time giving her family a better quality of life.
