Marta Yolanda's story

Marta Yolanda M. D. Q. is 67 years old and lives in Arce city, located in La Libertad department. She lives there together with her husband, one son and 2 grandchildren, who are in her care owing to the fact that their parents live overseas. Marta works selling popular medicines and making and selling table cloths, products which she sells door to door in all the districts in Arce. Regardless of her advanced age, Marta works very hard and walks many many kilometres, with the goal of being able to sell all her products and in this way obtain better earnings every day. Apart from the fact that it is very hard work and quite risky, Marta looks on the situation positively, including having clients who wait for her to buy their medicines and table clothes, owing to the fact that she offers very good prices. She is seeking a loan with which she can buy thread to make the table cloths and purchase a larger quantity of medicines. Marta is a very humble person who is known in the area where she lives as being very responsible and a good neighbour. She herself wishes to work hard for her family, to give them everything that is necessary.
