A loan helped to buy groceries in order to prepare the lunches she sells.


Martha Marlene's story

Martha Marlene and her family live in Santa Ana, a place with beautiful countryside landscapes and freshwater resorts that receive many visitors. However, due to the pandemic, they are still empty, causing great financial losses.

Martha is a woman who has had to work hard in order to move forward with her family, more so now that things are still complicated because of the pandemic. She prepares lunches in her house, and later delivers them herself, either to homes or to certain places of business depending on her customers' requests.

At the beginning of the pandemic Martha's orders dropped a great deal, but later things improved and are returning slowly to normal. This loan is to buy groceries to prepare her lunches.
