Martha
View original language description ↓
Martha has been selling fast food for a long time. At 32 years of age, she has demonstrated that she is a proactive woman who spreads joy to those who know her. By means of her job, she has been able to move her 5 children forward, and they in turn take the fullest advantage of getting ahead. Martha is a woman with the desire for self-improvement. As a result, she wants to expand and develop her business because it is located in a commercial zone. She has the support of her husband, Segundo, who helps her out a great deal in her business. However, in order to reach her objective—having a kiosk made that will better welcome her patrons—she needs a sum of money to invest in her business, thus fulfilling the plans that she has laid out.
