Martha Lidia's story

Martha Lidia V. is 54 years old and lives with her husband and twelve year old son in the neighborhood of Belén in the city of Juticalpa. She sells merchandise such as shoes, clothing, lotions, cosmetics, and other personal products. Martha started this business because her husband’s income is low, so she designated a section of her house for establishing a small store where she can earn extra income to support her family. One of the disadvantages that she faces is that her business is located along a dirt road. When the weather gets hot she must keep the door open, which causes her merchandise to be covered in dust.

Martha is requesting a loan to buy more merchandise of various kinds. The support she is receiving through this loan will help her keep her store well-stocked and increase her sales, thereby allowing her to support her household. Her goal is to make improvements to her store so that she can display her products in a way to prevent them from getting damaged. Martha has been a client of FAMA OPDF for three loan cycles and possesses a very good payment history. It should be mentioned that her promptness has resulted in her being recognized as one of the best clients of FAMA OPDF.
