Cinia Marilú's story

Cinia is a 38-year old woman who studied three years of high-school. She is single and has an 11-year old son who studies 5th grade. They live with her parents and brother.

She has worked as a dressmaker for 10 years. She started with a project for the Mayor's Office and kept learning since then. She also has a small business selling underwear, blouses and perfume, and offers her products to teachers and moms when she brings her son to school, between 10 and 12pm.

She is requesting a loan to buy labor, given that her father has a 7,000 sqm land of corn and a 3,500 sqm land of beans. She also needs to buy fertilizer to obtain a good output. Her goal is to produce a good amount of beans for sale, to invest the profits in her son's education and to continue growing her small dressmaking business.
