Marina's story

Marina, 47, is an admirable woman, considering that she raised her three children on her own. Two of them are still living with her in a house she bought fourteen years ago. Marina sells food in her restaurant, equipped step by step with all the necessary things. It was difficult at first, but now she has an industrial kitchen and a well-equipped establishment thanks to her hard work and commitment. Marina has a great customer base, because she is located in a well-frequented and commercial area, especially during the weekly Sunday fair. She hopes to improve her menu in order to attract more customers and improve her profits.

Marina will use the 2,300 soles [PEN] to buy a bag of rice, oil cans and milk to prepare her food and improve her restaurant. She promises to pay the installments according to plan.
