A loan of $525 helped to buy school supplies.


Mariela Giovana's story

This borrower is from the Fortín neighborhood. She is in a civil union and her husband has two businesses. He is a security guard and in his free time he works doing welding. They have three children, two of which are studying at the "fiscomisional" school [a Catholic school provided with government funding]. She started this business in 2007 when she decided to do it due to the time that it would giver her to care for her children and do her household chores. She works everyday at any hour she chooses. She will invest the money from the loan in the purchase of school supplies for her children.
