Marianela's story

Mrs. Marianela M. H. is 29 years old and married. She has a four-month old son, and her husband works as an agent for ENACAL, selling irrigation and sewer systems. Marianela has a small store where she sells children's clothes and shoes, and cosmetics. Her husband suggested creating the business as a means of earning extra income and improving their standard of living. Marianela's store is located in her home, and she has managed it for eight years. Now that she has a child, Marianela would like to invest more capital into her business, so that she can buy a house of her own. Marianela's dream is to visit her childhood nanny in the U.S.
