A loan of $850 helped to buy personal items and respond to her customers' large orders.

Marta Nelly's story

Marta is married and has a son who's seven years old. Due to the fact that her husband's earnings were not sufficient to be able to support all the household expenses, Marta decided to begin her own business in order to contribute financially and thus be able to have a better quality of life at home. Like this she began selling personal items by catalog and since then, her household's quality of life has improved considerably. Currently, despite her having large orders from her customers, she still has financial difficulties in being able to stock her business and respond to these orders. Because of this Marta is looking for a loan in order to buy personal items and respond to her customers' orders.

In this way she will overcome the difficultly she has with capital and her business will manage to move forward, allowing her to have better sales each time in addition to better earnings for her household, and consequently, a better quality of life for her husband and son.
