Martha Monsiváis began her business 12 years ago, almost by chance, when her oldest daughter refused to continue studying. Martha was looking for an activity that would help her daughter continue to grow so that she wouldn’t waste time and would be occupied with something. Martha decided to sell chips and soft drinks out of her home. Little by little she has invested in the business and it has grown so that now she has a grocery store. It has become a family business, since her husband now helps Martha run it.

Martha is requesting a loan of $675 US that she will repay in four months in order to restock the store and thus to be able to continue growing and getting ahead. Let’s help Martha and her family move forward.
