A loan of $725 helped to purchase items to sell during the national holidays.


Martha's story

Martha is 59 years old and she lives in her own home together with her husband and their daughter, who in turn has a little girl of her own. Her business is toy sales, adjusting the items she carries according to the time of year and special national holidays. The stand she occupies is rented space. It is located in the market, the most visited market in the district. All her sales are finalized in cash only. She pays special attention to cordiality and customer service, which is why her sales are always so good. She has been at this business for the past 6 years and she loves doing what she does. She is able to employ her daughter as help to carry out sales. Her greatest dream is to finish building a stand in a different market so that they can move their business. This is the 20th loan with MFP (Kiva Field Partner) and she is committed to making her payments on time. She knows that this help has been crucial for the development of her business. This loan will be used to supplement her merchandise by purchasing ribbons, hats, gloves, boots, and ponchos to prepare for the national holidays.
