A loan of $625 helped to stock her general store.

Marleny Noemy's story

Marleny, 34, set aside space in her house 4 years ago for a corner shop where she sells the everyday products that her neighbors want. Her customers buy from her because she has a good range of products and provides good, friendly service. Her income from the business covers the costs of supporting her and her 4-year old daughter. Marleny is applying for a loan that she will use to stock her store with the products she sells: soft drinks, snacks, baked goods, grains, cooking oil, sugar, etc. The investment will allow her to buy bulk supplies of the products at a better unit price. Her goal for the business is to generate an income that will allow her to buy whatever her daughter needs.
