Martha Elena's story

Martha Elena Rubí Hernández is 42 years old, and a single mother with 2 children. Professionally, runs a beauty shop, which she has been doing for over 10 years. She began with very few resources, as it was very difficult to get all the necessary equipment for her work. With the little bit of money she accumulated, she was able to buy hair care products.

Martha is a woman who has suffered quite a bit during her life, however, this does not prevent her from moving forward. The money that Martha requests will be used as capital for her business, to buy things such as chairs, hair dryers, curling irons, and hair care products. Her dream is to expand her business.
