Mareli Rosario's story

Mareli lives with her mother and child because she is a single mother. She does not have relatives abroad. She has a general store, selling clothing and sandals; she learned the art of marketing commodities from her mother and the others on her own. She´s had the store for five years, and began also doing other activities last year.

The loan which she needs will allow her to buy products for the store such as candy, sugar, rice, beans, salt, drinks, and more. This will help her to restock the business and meet the needs of her customers, increasing revenue and thus providing for her home.
Her dream is to expand her store further, make some improvements to her house, and support her child in school.
