Martha Janneth
Young Martha has been selling new and used clothing, bags and cosmetics for the past year. A relative of hers sends her merchandise from the United States and the rest she buys in various stores in the city. Thus she offers variety and quality to her customers, who are mainly neighbors in the suburb where she lives or her co-workers since, during the afternoons, she works for a shoe distributing business located in the city’s commercial center.

Martha has always liked business because her mother was a merchant when she was a child, and she greatly enjoys this work.

Martha is requesting a loan in the amount of 10,000 lempira to invest in her business by purchasing children’s clothing, second-hand shoes, blenders, tableware and other items. She hopes PRISMA can help her because she needs to stock her business.
