A loan of $1,125 helped to buy beauty supplies.


Martha Cecilia's story

Martha has been characterized as being very hardworking and never giving up. Because of this her family has moved her ahead despite all the adversities that life has presented. Martha, 49, is a single mother, head of household with two children because her children’s father abandoned her some time ago. Notwithstanding this, Martha has continued to strive and work hard to generate sufficient income to provide a good quality of life for her children.

Martha started a store about a year ago with her sister where they sell beauty supplies like shampoo, hair coloring and hair treatments, among others and thanks to this she generates income to support her home.

The business has been doing well thanks to the good service Martha offers. Her customers have increased considerably and this is why at present they are asking for more products than she’s able to offer and sometimes she loses sales because she does not have enough merchandise to meet demand.

Because of this Martha would like to buy a wider selection of products but she currently does not have sufficient capital to do so which is why her hopes are placed on a loan that will make it possible for her to buy beauty supplies like shampoo, hair treatments and hair coloring, among others so that her business will be better stocked with merchandise and she can tend to more customers who want it.

Martha dreams that her business continues growing and generating good income so that she can provide her children with a university education and economic stability in the future that will keep them from going through so many adversities like she’s had to.
