Marta Lilian
Marta, age 32, is a single mother. She lives in her mother’s home with her three children, who are currently studying.

For the past three years she has had a store in their home, where she sells basic necessities such as beans, milk, eggs, bread, oil, drinks, sweets, soap, and detergents, among others. She has had this business for three years; this has given her sales experience, which has allowed her to get better earnings. The store is located in her home, which is in a high-traffic area. It is well known by the neighbors in the area. She has built a good clientele because she keeps the store well-stocked.

She wants to make the store bigger and make an investment in it, but she needs capital. Because of this, she is asking for a loan that will allow her to buy what she needs for her store. She guarantees that she will pay her debt, and at the same time she trusts that this will give her family a better quality of life.
