A loan of $1,000 helped to buy merchandise for her store, so that she can continue to pay for her son’s university education.


Marilyn's story

Marilyn is 44 years old and a hardworking woman who strives tirelessly to earn an income so she can help her husband with the household finances and her only son’s university education.

She has worked as an independent merchant for the past eight years, selling merchandise such as clothing and shoes. Her main customers are her family, friends, and acquaintances in the area. She is asking for this loan to buy merchandise (jeans, t-shirts, sneakers, blouses, and jackets). This way she will have a variety of merchandise to satisfy her customer wants and needs, improving her sales and income through her labor.

Marilyn says that her main purpose is to continue working for her family’s wellbeing and she wants to continue working with effort and dedication to accredit her business well and guarantee her family’s financial stability so she can enjoy a better quality of life with her loved ones.
