Martha De Jesús
Martha, 39, has a spouse and two children. She has 18 years’ experience in her tortilla and grocery store business. She’s learning the occupation on her own because he parents didn’t provide her with schooling and she’s never been able to get a formal job so she manages to support her family by means of her business. She starts making tortillas at nine in the morning and finishes at noon. To do so, she uses a wood-burning stove and a clay griddle. Her life companion helps her take care of customers in the store.

Martha boards a bus in her community and takes a 20-minute trip to the city where she buys the goods for the store. She makes her purchases afternoons because she spends mornings making tortillas; she then returns home with her purchases.

The loan she’s asking Fundación Campo for is to buy 5 sacks of corn, one sack of beans, rice, oil, sugar, firewood and everything needed to stock her store and provide good customer service and meet demand; she will also be able to avoid having to go into the city so often to buy things little by little since this incurs more expense and higher prices.

She plans to save and provide her children with schooling so that when they become adults they will be professionals useful to the country and to their family.
