Martha
Martha is a member of the 'Ccatun Sacha' community bank. She lives with her husband and the youngest of her five children. Her youngest son will soon receive his degree in accountancy.

Martha will use her loan to invest in her business selling clothes, food and spices which she buys from distributors and then sells in different street markets. She has been in this business for eight years and has worked with FINCA Peru for more than ten years. Martha left her bank for three years but then joined again two years ago. She likes to see her savings grow. Martha is saving up to rebuild her adobe house with "material noble" as she puts it (solid, good-quality building materials). Her daughter is also a member of the same community bank and she has more savings than her mother. She says that this makes her very proud.
