Martha Maria Cristin
View original language description ↓

Ten years ago, when Martha’s husband died leaving her with three children and no money, she had to find a means to support her and her children. She attended a training class in making decorative candles and with the money that she had saved, she started her own small business. With the income from this business she has managed to support her children.

Martha requires a loan for $975, repayable over six months, to fulfil her existing orders and to purchase basic materials for making decorative candles, since from around this time of the year she has to start preparing for the festive season in December.

With your support, Martha can grow her business further.
