Martha Elena's story

Martha Elena, who is 50 years old, is from the town of Chinandega. She has three children. This entrepreneur's business is selling a variety of products such as soft drinks, hot dogs, grains, candies, and other items. She began this business 10 years ago to help with the household expenses. The business is located in her home. Now she has moved forward with the help that the Foundation Leon 2000, together with the Kiva program, has offered her, since it has allowed her to invest and stock her little business, which generates earnings for the support of her family.
