La Señora Martha del Socorro E. tiene la edad de 51 años. Es una mujer casada. Tiene 4 hijos a su cargo. La actividad económica es la venta de granos básicos. Hace más de 6 años que posee este negocio. La ubicación de su negocio es en su vivienda. Por lo que sus inicios surgen con muy poco capital, pero con muchas ganas de salir adelante. Por lo que tenía que pagar las cuentas de su vivienda y además proporcionarles a sus hijos estudios y alimentación. Poco a poco fue incrementando su inventario con las pocas ganancias que su negocio le generaba, sus clientes recurrían a su pulpería ya que la atención de Martha es muy buena y además atiende a sus clientes con una sonrisa en sus labios.
