Martha's story

Martha is 48 years old, single, and a businesswoman. For the past twelve years, she has had a business selling food and vegetables. She started working as a kitchen assistant in a food sales stall in the municipal market, which was where she saw the possibility of having her own business. She started it with her own capital that she had saved up. She also works as domestic help because she is the one who supports her two children, being a single mother.

She is requesting a loan from Fundenuse to build a bathroom with a toilet. With this investment, she will improve the living conditions of herself and her family. Her future plans are to build a house for her two children and to have an additional section in the market.
