Martha Rosa
Doña Martha Rosa is 33 years old, married, and has three school-aged children. She and her family live in the neighborhood of La Fuente. Her husband sells clothes, while she sells grains and variety of other products. She started her business several years ago by selling pork from her home, but the recent outbreak of swine flu impacted her sales in a negative way.

With her savings and a loan from AFODENIC, she purchased basic grains so that she could continue making sales. For this loan request, she will buy 28 quintales (1 quintal = 46 kg) of beans so that she can increase her sales and achieve better returns. She hopes her sales continue to grow as she obtains more customers. Doña Martha Rosa has benefitted from her previous loans and is grateful to the Institution for helping her develop financially as well as personally.
