Martha Lidia's story
Martha is 57 years old, went to school up to the first grade, and currently is partnered and has two children who don't live with her. Her partner works in agriculture and they support each other. Martha has been a worker since she was very young; she helped her mother to wash clothes they took in, currently she has a business in her house which is a corn mill. She has had this business for the past 5 years and decided to start it with her partner with their savings. She needs the loan to purchase construction materials and metal sheeting since she wants to improve her house, because it is the rainy season and water comes into the house since the metal sheeting is full of holes. She hopes to improve her house little by little for the well-being of her family.
