Marta Elizabeth C. G. lives in Plan del Pino in the city of Delgado. She lives together with her parents and she is a Business Administration student at the Central America University in El Salvador. She has a store called "Tienda Martita" that is run and owned by her. Her parents gave it to her so that she will be able to earn money to keep up her studies in university. She sells clothings, basic grains, drinks, coldcuts, chicken, and other primary needs items. Her store sees a great demand because it has the best selection in the region. Marta requests a loan so that she will be able to purchase tanks of gas to resell them in her store, and also to purchase other basic products. She wants to be able to sell more through her business so that she will be able to keep up with her tuition. Her primary goal is to become a professional and to later be able to help her parents.
