Martha Noemi's story

Señora Martha is a member of the Pauteñitas communal bank. She lives in the Paute canton (Cuenca), an area with a wonderfully mild climate. The residents of Paute are very hard-working and enterprising. The region has a traditional and delicious cuisine. Flowers, including the highest quality roses, are cultivated in this canton for export; the whole canton is like a garden. Martha is 25, married, and has two children ages 2 and 4. Her husband is a driver, and drives a truck. They own their own home. Martha takes care of their children and sells Herbalife products in her free time. She has been doing this for five years, and works every day of the week. She also supplies fruit to the markets, thanks to her husband and his truck. This is her second loan in the communal bank and she will invest it in Herbalife natural products. Her goal is to have a higher position in Herbalife.
