Martina and her husband Efraín have a stable marriage and are a very close-knit couple. They have two children, for whom they are striving to succeed, so that they can give them the best.

They are requesting a loan in order to upgrade the electrical wiring in their home, as what they currently have is in poor condition and they are afraid that an accident may happen.

Martina works as a cook in a breakfast taco stand. These are made with cooked fillings such as barbecued pork, sausage with egg, ground beef, potatoes, beans, and a variety of other fillings.

With this income, she plans to pay off the loan, as her husband Efraín will use the income he gets as a company security guard, to pay the household expenses and their children's school costs.

They wish to improve their personal asset, live in better conditions, and ensure that their children are not in danger in their home.
