Las Estrellitas Group's story

Martha lives in a beautiful town. She is single and wants to succeed in her business. Martha is requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of clothing for women, men, girls, and boys so that she can sell these items in the neighboring communities close to where she lives. She has been in business for 10 years and says that she is doing very well. With the income she generates, Martha is able to cover some of her expenses.

Her reason for starting this business was to help her parents obtain some income since they lack the most basic needs, but she says they are now doing well. What she wants most from her business and from this loan is to continue working so that she can keep improving her income and maintain her home.
