Marta María's story

Marta María R. H. is 34 years old. She lives in Pasaquina, which is located in the La Unión department. Marta is a very strong woman. She is a hard-working person who watches out for her family’s well-being day and night. Her husband lives in the United States, which is the reason she is raising her two minor children alone. Her children go to school. Marta has a restaurant, and she sells breakfasts and lunches. It is located in front of the mayor’s office in Pasaquina. There are a lot of people there, and that is of great benefit to Martha. She is requesting a loan to be able to buy a larger quantity of raw material to make the food. She will buy things like vegetables, rice, beans, sugar, fruit, and other things. She does all of this with a great desire to increase her sales. This way she will give her children a better life.
