Marilin's story

Marilin, 20, is married and has two children, ages 4 and 1. She makes a living in agriculture growing a variety of vegetables such as potatoes, yucca, and corn on her plot of land in the community of Junta Pirai.

This loan is her second sequence with the institution. Marilin's going to use it to grow yucca, buy a little pig, and prepare the land. Her reason for requesting this loan is to get the resources for the planting and to be able to survive.

In her business Marilin faces weather challenges, which many times ruin the fields. She's going to use the profits to improve her quality of life and her family's.

Marilin's a responsible and hardworking person. She's grateful to the institution for its support.
