Martha Lorena's story

Martha has two young children in her care. She works at a local store and has three years of experience in this business. With the efforts of her husband and saving the little that he made, they slowly began to accumulate various items for the business such as detergents, basic grains, and soft drinks. She will invest this loan in buying soft drinks, sweets, detergents, household products, bread, and juices. Martha is very hardworking and her husband helps her in her business. He goes shopping with her for the store products. She tells us that her greatest source of pride is being able to provide her children with an education.
