Martha Azucena's story

Martha Azucena is 52 years old and lives together with her son who is in her care. For 20 years, Martha has run a fruit stall in the market. Every day she offers her customers a variety of fresh fruit which she acquires in the wholesale market in Managua. This business is a great help to her family.

Martha's business always has customers who prefer to shop there because of the good customer service that she offers and her kindness but, above all, because of the quality of the fruit that she sells. This loan will be used to acquire products such as bananas, onions, tomatoes, watermelons, papayas, peanuts, etc. Martha is a very hard-working woman who is devoted to her family. Her biggest wish is to continue growing as a businesswoman.
