A loan of $650 helped to buy bananas at wholesale for subsequent resale.


Martha Santos's story

Martha, 35, has five children. She buys bananas at wholesale to resell in her local market; she’s been in business ten years. She thanks God because He has helped her in her business and with His help her children now also sell ‘chocobananos’ [chocolate covered bananas] at good prices because she’s aware that she lacks working capital to continue with her business. Her dream is that her children have their own businesses to get ahead little by little.
