A loan of $600 helped to pay school tuition and to buy fruit.

Martha's story

Martha, 37, lives in Primavera de Duran (urban outskirts that were originally irregular with several hills, streams and lagoons that are still present as evidence of deteriorating ecology). She’s a widow with two children who are at university. She is a fruit vendor. She chose this activity because she was left a widow with two daughters to support; she decided to sell fruit. She works alone from 7am until 7pm.

With help from the loan she wants to pay tuition and buy school supplies for her children and at the same time buy fruit for the business. What she most wishes for is to have a locale that she can sell her products in.
