Martha Angelica's story

Martha Angelica is a single mother who is thirty-six years old. She rents in an urban colony in the West of the country and her family is composed of her four children. One of them is a mechanic and he contributes financially towards the support of the family. Martha has a business selling juices and orange smoothies along one of the principal streets of the city where she lives. She has been in business for many years and it is thanks to this business that she has been able to feed her children and keep them in school. She is an enterprising woman who describes herself as a "Warrior" who does not stop motivating herself to move forward for the sake of her children. She has a very positive attitude and she has worked with loans in the past. From very early in the day she sets out in her vehicle, first to drop off her children who are still in school and then she goes to purchase the products that she needs to make her delicious juices. She sets up her business the street sidewalk and "Let's start selling!". Martha wants to purchase oranges in wholesale in order to obtain lower prices and improve her profits. She also wants to carry out maintenance repairs to the vehicle she uses every day for transportation. She hopes to count on the support of Integral (Kiva Field Partner) so that her business will continue to move forward and so that her children will have a dignified education and not be left wanting for food.
