Marta Lidia
Marta Lidia V. O. lives in Santa María in the department of Usulután. She is 42 years old and lives with her four daughters. For six years, she has been working at the business she started at home and later moved to the regional market of Usulután. Now that she has her tortilla establishment in the market, her earnings have improved dramatically.

Marta now faces the problem of having few supplies on hand to keep up with production. For this reason, she is requesting a loan to buy ingredients in bulk so that she can increase her production and reap the resulting profits.
