Marlin's story

Marlin, age 38, is married and has three children. She lives with her husband and their children in a village in Esparta Atlántida. Marlin previously raised and fattened pigs and sold soft drinks. However, she opted to establish a business of selling food and groceries.

She has three years of experience in this business. She sells fried chicken with plantains, meat turnovers, and tacos. She also sells churros, soft drinks, bread, and other grocery products.

She has decided to get this loan for 18,000 lempiras in order to buy food products. She will buy things like basic grains, rice, shortening, sugar, bread, eggs, soft drinks, churros, and condiments, etc. She will do this in order to stock the kiosk and to cover the customers' orders.

Her goal is to make the business grow in order to get better income and to have a sense of well-being for herself and her family.
