Martha Isabel's story

Martha Isabel and her family live in the city of Bahía, which was affected by the 16 April 2016 earthquake. Currently the city is rebuilding its infrastructure and businesses, and promoting tourism. It's a resort with beautiful beaches and all the water sports.

Martha Isabel runs a Pototin-brand baby-diaper distribution franchise. She rents a store downtown where she pays a monthly rent. She works every day and distributes diapers, wet wipes, and toothpaste. She sells these products in cash.

The health crisis was very hard on her in the beginning because she wasn't able to make sales, but now she's reactivating little by little so she can continue to earn her income.

This loan is to buy baby diapers in various sizes, designs, and qualities, as well as toothpaste, make-up, and other products.

Her dream is to have her own house and her store to continue with her sales and for her family to be very healthy.
