Marta Irene
Marta is 64 years old and lives with her family in their own house. She dedicates herself to selling clothing. She has spent five years doing this work and it has given her a lot of experience which allows her to make better earnings. The business is located in a market which is near her residence. She has provided for a lot of clients because the people know everything has good quality and good prices. She wants to increase her business but doesn't have sufficient capital to support herself. For this reason she is asking for a loan that will allow her to buy more clothes: pants, shirts, skirts, blouses, children's clothing, undergarments, etc. She is sure that she will repay the debt and at the same time has hope that it will bring her home economic security.
