A loan helped to buy flowerpots, wire, fertilizers, and leaf litter for sowing flowers and cactus.

Martha De Jesús's story

Martha attended school through the ninth grade. She is married and her husband works as a driver. She has two children, of whom one is her dependent and attends school.

Martha has made a living growing and selling flowers and cacti for seven years. She learned this business thanks to her parents. The nursery is located two kilometers from her home.

She needs a loan in order to purchase flowerpots, wire, fertilizers, and leaf litter in order to plant flowers and cacti.

Martha's dream is to own a well-established plant nursery and to provide the best for her family.
