Martha Carmela's story

Martha is a noble, hard-working, 44-year-old woman. She is single and has two children, aged 17 and 15, who are in school thanks to their mother's tireless efforts. She works raising dairy cattle and also as a day labourer, working hard to support her children and provide them with the things they need.

Martha requested this loan to invest in buying a cow, salt, balanced feed and vitamins. She hopes this will improve her income buy increasing milk production. Martha hopes that her children will be able to finish their studies and become professionals.
