Marlyn Massiel's story

Marlyn is a humble young woman of 22 with the desire to forge ahead. She originally came from Leon, is single, and the mother of a 6 year old son. Marlyn only managed to complete her 4th year of secondary school.

She began her business with the aid of a small loan she received from financial institutions. That is how Marlyn came to work in her own business selling clothing in the streets. With great effort and arduous labor, she ventures out every day into the streets to sell her clothes. This is how she earns a living. Despite being so young, Marlyn has always been an independent woman, and has learned how to earn her living by working hard. Marlyn can count on her mother's help in selling clothes. Her expectations are to expand her business with the object of increasing sales each day.

Marlyn is requesting financing to buy underwear, blouses, pants, skirts, dresses, shorts, socks, etc. Among her future plans is to be able to establish a clothing store in order to acquire more earnings.
