Martha
Martha is 42 years old, and she lives with her partner who is a workman. They have 3 daughters; Hilda is 21, Margaret is 16, and Pilar is 9. Pilar is the only daughter that lives with her parents. It was not easy, and it took great effort, but two years ago Martha started a store. She had to sacrifice many comforts to do this, but happily the business has been profitable. Her store is popular because stores are scarce in the area where she lives. She likes her work because she can take care of her household expenses and be independent. But it is hard for her to keep the store stocked. The market is far from her home, and access to her house is very limited. Even so, Martha puts forth all of her will and effort. Her daughters are the principal source of support. Her youngest is especially supportive. With her joy and charisma she attracts and helps lots of customers. With all of the effort that she puts into her business Martha hopes that her business will grow and become more profitable. Martha has had several loans with MFP. This is her first individual loan. She promises to make her payments on time just as she has done with her community bank. With the loan she will buy merchandise to stock her store. She will buy school supplies. They are much in demand in this part of the school year.

Se dedica a la atención de la bodega que puso hace 2 años, gracias a su gran esfuerzo, ya que no fue nada fácil, tuvo que sacrificar muchas comodidades para lograrlo, felizmente el negocio le ha resultado rentable, debido a que por la zona en la que vive son muy escasas las tiendas, siendo su negocio muy concurrido. A ella le gusta su trabajo porque puede solventar los gastos de su hogar y ser independiente, pero abastecer su tienda se le hace difícil, ya que el mercado queda lejos de su hogar y el acceso a su casa es muy limitado, aún así Martha le pone todas las ganas, y sus hijas son su principal fuente de apoyo especialmente la última, que con su alegría y carisma atrae gran cantidad de clientes apoyándola mucho en la atención de la clientela. Con todo el esfuerzo que le pone a su trabajo espera que en el futuro su negocio crezca y le resulte mucho más rentable. Martha ha tenido varios préstamos con MFP y este es su primer préstamo individual, y promete ser tan puntual como lo fue con su banco comunal. Con el dinero que solicita quiere comprar más mercadería para abastecer su tienda, comprando útiles escolares, que son muy cotizados en este periodo escolar.
