Martha Del Socorro's story

Martha del Socorro E. is 51 years old and married. She has four children. She works selling basic grains. She has run this business for more than six years. Her shop is located in her home. Her business is run with little capital, but with much desire to get ahead. She must pay her household expenses as well as provide food and education for her children. Little by little she has increased her inventory using the small income her business generates. Her customers return to her shop because Martha is very helpful and always attends to her customers with a smile. The funds she is requesting will be used as capital to purchase rice, sugar, beans, oil and corn. Her greatest dream is for her children to complete their studies and get ahead. With this work she is able to help them succeed.
