Marina Elena's story

Señora Marina is 49 years old, lives with her spouse, and has 2 children who depend on her. She lives in a neighbourhood of Tegucigalpa, in the central zone of Honduras. For 8 years she has dedicated herself to selling new and used clothing. Doña Marina's customers are her neighbours, friends, and also her coworkers, as she works at a cleaning company. She is a very hard-working woman who wants to get ahead in life. Doña Marina needs this loan to purchase pants, dresses, skirts, shirts, bathing suits, etc. She hopes that this investment will help her improve her quality of life and that of her family by offering more products to her customers. Doña Marina's dream is that her business will become bigger and can always help her family.
