Marilyn Ivett's story

Marilyn is 32 years old and a single mother. She lives in her own house with her two children, aged 11 and 9 years old respectively. They are both in school. Marilyn has been making a living selling perfumes, lotions, creams, and shoes for some years and runs the business out of her home. With her profits, Marilyn is able to cover some household costs. Marilyn is currently applying for a loan to buy merchandise in bulk, and to be able to stock up her business in order to earn higher profits. With this she can provide her children with a better quality of life.
