Martina's story

Martina works in agriculture on a small piece of land that she found outside of the town. Approximately four months ago, there was a strong hailstorm in the area that affected all the crops. She has lost a large quantity of her production, which resulted in a decrease in yields, and this affected income from sales of her product. These factors caused economic instability and an imbalance that directly affected the food source for all the family and for feeding her small children.

She requests the loan to buy assorted fabric and sewing machines, and with these tools she will begin to design clothing for children and adults. In the future, she hopes to have more income and to work on small plots of land that she can attend to with her entire family.
