Espinas Y Hojas De Sm Group's story

Mirtha is an orphan. Ever since she was 12 years old she worked at different boarding houses as a kitchen helper. At a young age she did not go to school. What she earned barely covered her food and room rent. Because she was so young, she suffered a lot; she did not enjoy her childhood. She spent most of her life working.

She says that one day her friends invited her to Pro Mujer to take out a loan. Because she was not old enough and because she was so young they did not give her the loan. Some relatives asked for help, and they gave her a small amount of capital. She undertook her business of selling shoes.

She is now 24 years old, and she sells athletic shoes. She needs more capital to buy a stand at the market and to be able to have her own roof over her head.
