Martha's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase wholesale potatoes to sell.

Martha's story

Martha is 43 years old. She is married to Braulio, and they have three children. They live on a hillside of the city of La Paz known as Las Lomas. She and her family live in their own small home, which they built along with her husband. He is a master mason.

Martha is an enterprising woman who, for 12 years, has worked selling potatoes at the local fairs near her house. She sells the potatoes retail either by the pound or bushel. Martha purchases the potatoes very early at the wholesale market. This is the fourth loan that she is requesting from Fundación Sartawi. She will use it to purchase wholesale potatoes.

In addition to finishing the construction of her small house, her dream is to offer better opportunities to her children so that they can earn a university degree.
