Marcelina Antonia's story

Marcelina is 58 years old and has a small grocery store. Her husband works in agriculture. Together, they have 7 children, all of whom are now grown. Marcelina is requesting this loan in order to invest in her business, since she is running low on inventory. She will buy basic grains, milk powder, cereal, coffee, juice, and soda, among other products, and she is sure that with this investment she will be able to improve her sales. This way, she and her husband will be able to improve their economic situation.
