Martha Eugenia's story

Señora Martha Eugenia M. S. has a general store in which she sells a little bit of everything, located in the Santa Ana neighborhood, next to the Walter Penki bridge. Señora M. needs financing to buy merchandise for her store, since she has almost no stock. She opens her business from 6 in the morning until 9 at night every day. She is a single mother. She has no dependents now. But she is a woman who likes to work hard and not depend on anyone. She has a regular job, which is to sweep the streets in part of the town in the early morning hours. Then, on arriving at her house, she opens her store. Her business began 12 years ago when she began selling fruit at the door of her house in order to advance her children. Then she increased her stock for sale up to the point that it became a store. She has worked with us for about 5 years, with 28 loans, which have benefited her enough that she has been able to remodel her house.
