A loan of $500 helped to buy cheese.


Marina Elizabeth's story

Marina is a woman with a very agreeable character. She has a 22 year old son and a 19 year old daughter. Both are pursuing studies in university. Marina works together with her husband in their cheese-making business. The loan will go towards purchasing milk. She says that she needs to have double capital; half to remain in good standing with their milk providers, and the other half to give their customers products on credit. With her great optimism, Marina hopes to continue to grow her business and to give a good education to her children so that they can have a good future.
