Maribel's story

Maribel is twenty-eight years old. She makes a living at her own business selling frozen chicken and cold meats. She learned this trade during her three years working as an employee at a meat distributor. She later took a technical food course that complemented her knowledge and, with the desire to earn income as an independent businesswoman, began her own business in February 2012. She has the support of an employee and works every day beginning in the early morning hours. In this way, she is able to generate the necessary resources to cover her personal expenses and to economically support her family.

She is requesting a loan that she hopes to use to buy products wholesale. She will buy entire chickens, chicken pieces, different types of cold meats, eggs, milk products, and other items. This will allow her to meet the demand that always grows in the last month of the year, and to increase her profitability and earnings.

Maribel dreams of continuing to strengthen her business so that it endures and provides her with a favorable source of economic stability, giving her a better quality of life and well-being.
