Martha
Marta is 58 years old and is the single mother to one daughter, with whom she lives in her house made of high-quality materials. Marta works selling items of clothing for women and children in a rented stall in her town's market. She decided to go into this work on her sister's advice, because she considers it to be simple and appropriate for her age, and because there is no risk of losing the merchandise she sells because they aren't perishable products.

She previously worked selling food for social gatherings, and that was where she learned to work with great care and to manage her earnings.

She receives visits daily from her loyal customers, to whom she offers different clothing items like polos, blouses, pants, and underclothes, as well as the best variety of children's clothing. She travels to a different city on a monthly basis to buy merchandise wholesale and she personally selects the clothes that she'll be able to sell upon her return.

This is her third loan with Kiva and she feels grateful for the financial support that she receives to keep moving forward. In addition, she promises to make her loan payments in a punctual manner. On this occasion, she is asking for a loan of 3,000 nuevos soles to buy clothing wholesale and to stock her business with more styles of pants for women, men, and children.

Marta tiene 58 años, es madre soltera de su única hija con quien vive en su casa hecha de material noble. Marta se dedica a la venta de prendas de vestir para damas y niños en un puesto alquilado en el mercado de su localidad. Opto por este rubro aconsejada por su hermana ya que lo considera algo sencillo y adecuado para su edad y porque no hay riesgo de perder la mercadería que vende porque no son productos perecibles.
Anteriormente se dedicaba a la venta de comida y viandas para reuniones sociales y es donde aprendió a trabajar con bastante esmero y a administrar sus ganancias. Diariamente recibe la visita de sus fieles clientas a quienes ofrece distintas prendas de vestir como polos, blusas, pantalones, ropas interiores y la mejor variedad de prendas para niños. Mensualmente realiza un viaje a otra ciudad para comprar mercadería al por mayor y personalmente selecciona las prendas que al regreso pondrá en venta para su negocio. Este es su tercer préstamo con Kiva y se siente agradecida por el apoyo financiero que recibe para seguir adelante, además se compromete a pagar sus cuotas de manera puntual. En esta ocasión desea contar con 3,000 nuevo soles para la compra de mercadería al por mayor y abastecer su negocio con mas modelos de pantalones para damas, caballeros y niños.
