Martha Cecilia's story

Martha is a single mother and head of a family of two sons, 10 and 18 year of age. To generate the income that her home needs she has had for a while a general store. The store allows her to give her two sons a good quality of life and economic opportunities to get ahead. Despite the great adversities which she has had to overcome in life, Martha has been able to get ahead together with her sons and has been able to give them a good education and a good quality of life. For these reasons she values her store so much and always tries to grow it and generate good sales to improve her income. Thanks to the fact that her customers continue to grow Martha is requesting a loan to buy family-basket and office products to start offering a wider variety of products. In this way she will offer her customers these products and slowly diversify her sales. Moreover, she will continue to position her business and to grow it, which will allow her to continue to generate an income so her family has everything it needs.
