A loan helped supply her general store business.


Martha Del Carmen's story

Martha is a 54 year old mother and head of the family who can is asking for a financial loan to supply her general grocery store business.

The motive for the loan is that she is looking to have a greater quantity of food and personal hygiene products to have available for her customers.

She dreams of paying for her daughter's education and being able to improve her home.

Martha lives in a post-conflict area, and it's a high-risk loan given that the area is one of the poorest areas of Columbia. It has displacement and public order challenges, but is full of inhabitants who want to change their reality and improve their lives, people like Martha. Encourage her and help her.
