Martha
Martha is a hard-working, 35-year-old woman. She is a single mother of 3 children, to whom she offers love and an education. She lives in the home that she bought 10 years ago. It was built out of wood.

She gets up very early to make food for her children, and then she goes out to sell her food in front of her home, where she set up a table and some chairs so her guests feel comfortable. She has done this work for 2 years, since her husband left her and she had to take care of her children alone.

This is her second loan with Microfinanzas Prisma, and she is happy about having another opportunity to improve her business. She is grateful to her communal bank for allowing her to be a part of a supportive and united group.

With the 1,000 PEN from this loan, she will buy another table and more chairs. She will use the remainder to buy food to keep preparing the different dishes she offers.

Martha es una mujer muy laboriosa de 35 años. Es soltera, pero madre de tres hijos, a quienes les brinda amor y educación. Vive en la casa que logró comprar hace 10 años, la construyó a base de madera.
Ella se levanta muy temprano para preparar los alimentos para sus hijos y luego se dirige a vender sus platos de comida en el frontis de su vivienda, donde implementa una mesa con algunas sillas para que sus comensales se sientan cómodos. Esta labor la empezó hace 2 años, desde que su esposo la dejó y tenía que hacerse cargo de sus hijos sola.

Este es su segundo crédito con MFP y se siente contenta por tener otra oportunidad para mejorar su negocio. Asimismo, agradece a su banco comunal por permitirle formar parte de ellos y ser un grupo solidario y unido.
Con los 1,000 nuevos de este préstamo comprará otra mesa y más sillas, con el resto adquirirá comestibles para seguir preparando las diferentes comidas que ofrece.
