Martha Imelda
Martha started the business to have an income that would allow her to live better, since she retired from the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS), and the pension she received wasn't enough. Because of this she started her business in November of 1995, when a friend told her that she was selling clothes and it was going very well for her. She invited Martha to go on a trip to the US to buy things. Martha started selling among her friends from work and her neighbors, and that started to go very well for her. Afterward, she sold clothes and traveled to the city of Moroleon, Guanajuato, but she found clothes cheaper in Michoacan and Villa Hidalgo, Jalisco, because they got their stock directly (from the manufacturers), plus, it was new clothing.

Now Martha needs a loan of $600 that she will pay back in 12 installments. She will use it for a trip during which she will go to buy clothing to sell during the end-of-year time that is drawing near.

Martha inició el negocio para obtener un ingreso que le permitiera vivir mejor, ya que se jubilo del Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social (IMSS) y con la pensión que recibía no era suficiente. Por lo que comenzó en Noviembre de 1995 su negocio, cuando una amiga le comentó que ella se dedicaba a vender ropa y le iba muy bien, fue así que la invitó a hacer un viaje a los E.U. para comprar cosas. Primero empezó vendiendo entre sus compañeros de trabajo y vecinos y le empezó a ir muy bien. Después se dediqué a la venta de ropa y viajaba a la ciudad de Moroleón, Guanajuato, pero en la actualidad encuentra ropa mas barata en Michoacán y en Villa Hidalgo, Jalisco por lo que surte directamente haya además de que es ropa nueva.

Ahora ella necesita un préstamo por MXN $8,000 que pagara en12 catorcenas para realizar un viaje en cual va a comprar ropa para vender en esta época de fin de año que se acerca.
