Brenda Marisela's story

Brenda is a young woman of 21 who has a lot of dreams and goals. She is very hopeful that she will be able to fulfill each and every one of them. Brenda is married and completed her secondary education, graduating as an elementary school teacher. She does not work as a teacher as there were no jobs in any of the schools in her area. Her only support is her husband who works as a car mechanic in a well-known, very prestigious auto repair shop in her area. With his support, Brenda has decided to set up a business buying and selling general merchandise such as lotions, make-up, motorcycle oil, car oil, etc. The couple have no dependents so it is a little easier to support their family and Brenda is able to buy products on a small scale for her business.

Brenda is requesting a loan from COMIXMUL to buy general merchandise as her demand is growing and she needs to inject a little more capital into her business and invest in products to sell to her customers.

Brenda's plans are to continue enjoying the benefits offered by the cooperative with their low interest rates. She hopes to fulfill her dream of opening a general store as she currently sells her products door to door, travelling to different areas of her town.
