Martina Hilda's story

Martina, 58 years old, is married and the mother of 4 children. She is a humble shopkeeper with a very basic level of schooling, but a hard worker. She married very young, but her husband is the head of the household who has financially supported the family from the beginning. However, three years ago, she saw that she had the option to work in her own business and to be able to contribute to her household. It was then that she decided to put a grocery shop in her house and at the same time help her family. It has gone very well, but she sees that she needs to have more products. That is why she needs the loan, to buy dry grains, cleaning products, candy, snacks, bread, soup, canned goods, milk, and eggs. Since these are the products that her customers request the most, and she needs to have enough inventory to meet her customers needs. She wants, in the future, to be able to convert her grocery shop into a general store.
