Marta Isabel's story

Marta Isabel is 46 years old and lives with her children, who are studying at a school near the town where they live. She sells tortillas, which is the most important source of income for her household. Marta also has a small store that complements her other business. She has many customers who know that the tortillas she sells are made with the highest quality ingredients, sold at a good price, and served quickly and under sanitary conditions. Marta is a hardworking woman and a decent role model for Salvadoran women. She always strives to move forward so that she can attain a better future.

Marta wants to grow her business. Now that demand has increased, she wants to take advantage of this and invest more, but she needs capital. For this reason, she is requesting a loan from Apoyo Integral so that she can buy corn and firewood in bulk. Marta is a responsible woman who has good credit references. She is confident that the profit she generates will go toward repaying her debt according to the established terms. As a result, she will be able to offer her family a better quality of life.
