Martha's story

Martha is separated from her husband, who abandoned her with their baby, now 4 years old; she lives in a rented house in Pasankery, a neighborhood of La Paz.
She has a room she uses as sewing workshop, where she sews dresses, coats, men and women’s trousers; she then sells her clothes to shops located in the southern area of La Paz. This is how she earns money to provide for her family.
The loan she is requesting will be used to buy two sewing machines in order to increase her earnings.
This is her first loan, and according to the socio-economic analysis carried out on her she is positively qualified to be granted a loan.
