Marta
Marta lives in the city of Pilar. She owns her house and lives with dignity despite having only the basics. She sells groceries in general in her small store located in the same location as her home.

She’s been in business for many years and it generates her own income which is enough to live as long as need isn’t extreme. But life is hard and she tries hard every day to increase her customer base and the quality of her products. This is why she’s asking for a loan in order to buy groceries, baked goods and beverages in larger amounts and better quality to reach her goal which is to improve her service profile in the community.
