Marta Elizabeth
Marta is 44 years old. She is in a common-law marriage and has one child. She has seven years of experience buying and selling watermelons, a trade she learned with her life partner. Previously, she only carried out domestic chores in her house. She travels to the city where she goes to buy the watermelons, which she transports back in a small vehicle that her life partner has.

The loan she is seeking from Fundación Campo is to buy more watermelons. This is the time of year that the harvest comes in and the first watermelons that are coming in are expensive, and she wants to stock her business. With this investment, she will stock her business, satisfy the needs of her customers, and obtain a greater income for her family.

Marta states that her plans for the future include setting up another stall for selling watermelons, improving her vehicle, and giving her daughter the opportunity to study.
