A loan helped to construct a septic tank and to buy a toilet, shower, tubing and pumps, among other materials.

Martha Maria's story

Martha is known as an honest, hardworking person. For three years she has owned a corner store which she started with savings from her sales of beauty products, a job she had for over ten years. She is now 38 years old, and is married with two children to care for, and whose quality of life she guards.

For that reason she wants to continue progress on her house. She seeks a loan with which to construct a septic tank and to buy a toilet, shower, tubing, and pumps, among other materials, to construct a bathroom. With this she will be able to improve her quality of life and that of her family. In addition she will reduce the risk of running into animals that could affect her family's health. In the future she dreams of finishing construction on her house.
