A loan of $1,725 helped to buy a refrigerator so she can offer products that require refrigeration..


Maria Libia's story

Marta started doing sewing and weaving to generate income to support her home. When she saw the need in the market she opened a general store where she offers all types of products for the basic family basket. In her store, Marta is known for offering very good products and offering very good service. This has allowed her to have a lot of customers and guarantee good sales. Marta has the difficulty of having to take care of her father. He is very ill and elderly. This prevents her from keeping her business open all the time she would like to for her customers. Despite this, her business' good reputation has made her customers bring good sales and her business grow little by little over time. Due to the fact that her business doesn't have a refrigerator for refrigerated products, Marta is seeking a loan to have the opportunity to purchase a refrigerator and be able to offer refrigerated products.

Marta hopes that this will make her business grow even more and help her improve her and her family's quality of life. Marta dreams of having a big business that will guarantee good income and thus avoid the financial difficulties she has encountered and be able to keep progressing in life.
