A loan of $1,450 helped to purchase ceramic tiles and zinc sheets to renovate her shop.

Marta Sonia's story

Marta continues selling used clothing at the market. She offers varied items and many different styles. She works with her husband who assists in transporting and selling the clothing, since he is now retired. Their four children are married and independent.

With the loans already received, she has increased her inventory; however she will use this new funding to install ceramic tiles, thereby renovating her shop so that it is more hygienic and comfortable. She will buy thirty square meters of tile, a sack of adhesive material, sand, and zinc sheets in order to replace some on her roof that are full of holes. This will enable her to provide better service to her clientele.
