A loan of $1,500 helped to buy a laptop to finish her studies and help her family.


Marjorie Vanessa's story

Marjorie is a young adult of 20 years, single, and without children. Her jobs are clothing sales, and college studies. She is of sociable character, communicative, genuinely friendly, humble, honest, hard-working, entrepreneurial, a fighter and a very hard worker; she created her business in the fair: "Las Mañaneras de la Tumusla." This fair is performed in the nearby streets: Tumusla, Buenos Aires, Garcilaso de la Vega, Isaac Tamayo, Illampu, Graneros, Murillo y pasaje Ortega. The vendors begin arriving at 5 in the morning and offer their products from then until 9AM. She is of a swarthy complexion, with long black hair and medium build. Her daily routine starts at 4 in the morning to arrive at her selling post (full of different types of clothing for children) at 5. Her customers come from neighboring cities to buy by the dozens; her sizes, designs, and colors attract the attention of all types of families. At 9 in the morning, she and the other vendors must leave the streets to give way for the opening of the shopping malls. Marjorie, laden with her garments, goes directly to make her deposit; she keeps and saves everything, and now goes forth with her school supplies and university courses to finish her higher education. She hopes to finish her professional career to find a job and help her family, for which she needs a laptop computer to be able to study and complete her education. It is for these reasons that Marjorie asks a loan to buy a laptop computer to finish her studies and help her family.
