Martha's story

Martha is 66 years old, married, and lives together with her husband in Cayaltí district. This is an agricultural area which is also fairly commercial. It is located 45 minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

Martha's business is hiring out sound equipment for livening up different social and cultural events in her area. As she has been in her business for a long time, she has an established customer base who always request her services, especially at weekends. She uses the income that she makes in this business to help her husband support their family.

Martha is requesting a loan for 2,000 soles which she plans to use to maintain her sound equipment and buy a new speaker tower. This will enable her to restrengthen her business and improve the service that she offers.

Martha has already received a loan from the institution and has shown herself to be a punctual and responsible client when it comes to making her repayments. She has a lot of respect and good references from people in her area.
