Martha Lorena works in a trade she learned from her family, making videos and taking photos. Her husband is a photographer and she has been working together with him for 16 years. They have 3 children in school and they will continue to support them until they complete college. The loan will be used to purchase a professional video camera so they can work with more clients and offer better service. They hope to renovate all of the equipment they use in their photography business.




Martha Lorena siguió los conocimientos enseñados por su familia, se dedica a la grabación de videos y a la toma de fotografía a domicilio. Tiene 16 años de dedicarse a esta actividad junto a su esposo que es fotógrafo.
