A loan of $1,150 helped to buy merchandise that she needs for the Christmas season.

Mairent's story

Mairent is a micro-entrepreneur client of Kubo Financiero and this is her story:

Mairent is married and has two children. Her husband and father-in-law make earrings, and Mairent took advantage of that and started her business selling all kinds of costume jewelry and a little bit of perfume. She has her regular customers at street fairs, markets, stationery stores and gift shops. She was motivated to work in sales when there was a time when she didn't have money for milk for her 8 month-old son. This made her decide to sell her products. She was very well received, and she has been doing this for 16 years.

She is asking for this loan so she can replenish her inventory for the coming Christmas season during which time her customers place orders. Thanks to her business, Mairent has been able to make improvements in her house such as the purchase of some appliances and generally improve her standard of living.
