Marisol's story

Marisol is 27 years old. She is a living example that willpower is the only thing in life that you need to move forward. She says that when she finished her bachelor´s degree, her grandfather loaned her a place to start her own business. With her savings, she decided to open up a corner shop, where she works laboriously everyday from 9:00 in the morning to 9:00 at night. Marisol is a single mother with a 6 year-old daughter. Thanks to her self-employment she can dedicate as much time as necessary to her. "This is one of the greatest advantages," she says. Her dream is to offer her daughter a higher quality education and life. Currently, she is requesting a loan to buy stationary materials so she can meet the demands of the school season and increase her revenue.
