Martha works selling clothing from catalogues. She is married and her husband is an electrician. They have one son who is 16 years old and is studying in high school. Martha started her business 10 years ago and before this she sold jewellery. However, when she started to sell from the catalogue she made more money which she needs to pay for her son’s education and to help her husband with the household costs as his salary is not sufficient to cover them. She has various clients and one of her friends has offered to help her by offering her products to the people who work in her office.

Martha would like a loan of $250 which she will repay over a period of 3 months. She will use it to buy merchandise and to order what her clients in her friend’s office have asked her for so that she will always have stock and her business will continue to grow. She thanks you for your support and hopes that her business will continue to grow.

Martha empezó con su negocio hace 10 años atrás, antes de este negocio ella se dedicaba a vender joyería, pero cuando empezó con este nuevo negocio de venta por catálogo le fue mejor y lo hizo ya que tenia que aportar con ingresos para poder educar a su hijo y ayudar a su esposo con los gastos ya que el sueldo de él era insuficiente para cubrir los gastos de su hogar. Ella tiene varios clientes y con la ayuda de su amiga ha podido ofrecer sus productos a todas las personas de la empresa donde trabaja su amiga.
