Las Puntuales Group's story

Martha is 38 years old and married to Flavio, a farm laborer. The couple has four children who are studying in secondary or primary school. Martha has a laundry business and says that she is going to invest the money from this next loan in her business, because she needs to buy more detergent. She would also like to have another washer and another dryer, so that she can have a well-equipped launderette. Martha is a very hard-working woman and says that little by little she is going to grow her business, and that she hopes to have a lot of work so that she can earn better profits. Martha is a member of the Las Puntuales ["The Punctual Ones"] group. This group is made up of women who work hard and are punctual in all respects.
