Martha Irene's story

Martha Irene is 47 years old. She sells sodas and manages a diner. Martha has been in this business for seven years and had very little capital when she started. She always looks for ways to generate income for her family. Martha previously worked as a teacher, but this job was not enough to cover her household expenses. She always had ideas of opening her own business so that she could obtain a steady source of income.

This loan will be invested in the purchase of supplies. Her wish is to have her own form of transportation so that she can go buy products.
