Marlys Patricia's story

Marlys, 34 years old, is a mother of two children who are 2 and 5 years old and she lives in a common-law relationship with her partner. Due to a lack of employment opportunities and the difficult financial situation she was going through, she decided to set up her own business to generate income that would allow her to support and maintain her home. So she she started to sell meat four years ago. For this she works from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. every day of the week.

The client is a vigorous, active, and enterprising woman who is dedicated to her work and her family. She was encouraged to ask for a loan in order to invest in the purchase of an assortment of wholesale meat (pork and beef) in order to have enough available and to satisfy the demand for the product. This way she will be able to increase her sales and family income. Marlys dreams of strengthening her business, to improve the image of it in order to attract more customers, and to have the ability to offer her children a good education and better living conditions.
