Marta Leticia's story

Marta has a small general store where she sells basic products of daily consumption such as rice, sugar, beans, soft drinks, and others. Her business is located in the San Francisco neighborhood; she opens her business at 7 in the morning and closes at 10 at night. She also makes snacks to sell in her business like tacos, enchiladas, fried plantains, and pastries. She needs a loan to purchase more products wholesale to be able to obtain better earnings; she travels twice a week to the market to purchase her products. She tells us that her biggest wish is to be able to finish building her house. She is very friendly and always attends to her clients with a smile.
