Marlene De Las Misericordias's story

Marlene a 45 year old fighter who has carved out a life for herself through strife and struggle. She is a single mother of a 14 year old. Because of this, she saw the need to begin working. She started by selling products from a catalog to friends and family. Over the course of time and with the savings that she accrued, she set up her own business dedicated to selling footwear, clothing, and accessories. She works every day from 9 in the morning until 8 at night. Marlene is currently requesting a loan to purchase stock, taking advantage of Mother’s Month, in which the demand for products increases. She hopes to offer a better quality of life to her son.
