Martha Marlene's story

Martha Marlene, 31, sells lumber. She has been in this humble line of work for over 5 years; she is a responsible and tenacious young woman.

She started her business thanks to her husband, who is a sawyer. With the experience he had gained, he decided to set up a lumber sales business in their home so that his wife could have a source of income while still being able to care for their two, small children.

Martha has many dreams for the future; the main one being enlarging her house so that she can expand her business.

She is asking for this funding to buy lumber so that she can offer more variety of product to her customers.
