Martha Cecilia
Martha is a very responsible mother who lives together with her husband and her two dependent children. She lives in her own home which has been built as a result of all her efforts and hard work. She lives in a small, rural village of approximately 50 families. It is called 'Caserío Nuevo San Miguel' and it is on the outskirts of Lambayeque district, 40 minutes from Chiclayo province.

Martha has a small grocery store in her home. She tells us that she has been in this business for approximately three years. She learned the business from a very young age, having been taught by her parents who have been traders all their lives. Over time, Martha realized that the area in which she lived needed a grocery store. This was an opportunity that she did not want to let pass by and so she decided to invest the small amount of money she had in the business. Martha's husband and children are also committed to achieving the goals they have set out so that they can improve their living conditions.

Martha has decided to invest in buying groceries and other basic household products so that she can further stock her store. She has realized that there is demand and that, over time, she will increase her number of customers. She is requesting a loan for 1,200 soles from Edpyme Alternativa so that she can make this investment.

Martha and her parents were all born in the area in which they currently live. They have always worked in commerce and this has enabled them to forge good relationships with the people who live in the village.
