Martha's Group's story

Martha’s group consists of three women and she serves as the president. Martha is a peaceful, loving, responsible, and hardworking person. She is 35 years old, married, and has three children (ages 14, 8, and 1). Martha and her family live in Latacunga, which is located in the central mountains of Ecuador.

Martha works with her husband and her sisters. They produce clothing, so she is requesting a loan from FODEMI in order to buy raw materials, such as fabric, so that she can increase production and improve her quality of life. By improving her sales and generating more income at the same time, Martha will be able to maintain her family. She started this business with only one sewing machine and has gradually increased her business.

Her dreams include seeing her family do well and growing her business so that it has reaches an outstanding level of productivity.
