Martha Lorena
Martha, who is 48 years old, lives in Granada. She is married and has four children. Her youngest child is the only who lives with her currently. She has an elementary school education, and has sold groceries for twenty years. She began her business with her first husband with a space in the local market. As a result of marital problems, she separated from her husband and had to purchase the space from him to continue her business. She had very little inventory at the time, but has been investing her savings and has received loans from other institutions. Currently, she receives help from her lifer partner, who helps her with household costs. She sells her products in her community, and she hopes to increase her inventory of products which she currently does not have but which her customers have requested.
She is requesting the loan to purchase basic goods such as rice, beans, and sugar, etc. She believes the loan will help her to be able to fill her market space, which will provide her with better sales and satisfy her customers’ requests at the same time. Her goal is for her business to keep growing so she can have a better quality of life.
