A loan of $500 helped purchase of three young bulls.

Martha's story

Martha, thirty-eight years old, is single, has two children, and has worked as an elementary school teacher the last 21 years in the community of Comalapa. She is requesting her tenth loan to buy 3 young bulls and raise them, for she wishes to profit by selling them in the future. She has the help of her friends at work who will permit her to raise the bulls on their small farm. The Dream of doña Martha is that her family has better living conditions and that her children study and become professionals.
