Mariana started her business four years ago selling general goods and little by little got involved in hair dressing. She paid back her first loan of $200 on time. On this, her second loan, she has been in arrears because she got sick and was bedridden for several weeks. Fortunately, Mariana was able to renegotiate her loan terms with FUNDAMIC and is doing better. Mariana’s husband abandoned her and their three children. The two older children are now working, while Mariana works to support her youngest son who is in school.
