Martha is married and has three children, ages 5, 8 and 16. Her husband has a job in the United States, but it was difficult for him to send money to his family. Still needing to provide for her children, four years ago Martha started her own business selling undergarments and footwear. Little by little, she has stocked her business better and incremented her number of clients. Her youngest daughter helps her with the business, and together they have been able to grow it.

To cover current orders and improve her customer service, Martha is requesting a loan of $425, which she plans to repay within six months. You can help this family improve their quality of life. They are grateful for your confidence and support.
