Martha Isabel's story

Martha is a single mother who is head of her family with a 14 year old son, who always has wanted to provide him a good education and a good quality of life. This is why she has always been determined to work in order to earn money in order for her and her son to get ahead and in this way she could give him the best conditions in life that she was able to.

Martha has employment that has provided for them for a long time on the wages that they pay her, and besides this she has begun her own business of selling clothing where she offers clothing for ladies and with which she earns extra income in order to be able to support all the household expenses.

In her business of selling clothing, she has been known for the good customer service she offers her clients and this has permitted her to have a large clientele that guarantees good sales, and because of this her business has grown little by little.

Martha is asking for a loan in order to buy clothing so she can offer a better variety to her customers and thus increase her sales.

Martha hopes that in this way her business will continually capitalize itself and her earnings increase in order to offer her household a better quality of life. Also, Martha hopes that with more income her son can enjoy a better quality of life and have better economic opportunities.
