Dúo Maripositas De Magdalena Group's story

Marta Julia is a member of the "Dúo Maripositas de Magdalena" (Little Butterflies of Magdalena") group. She is 48, and has a 17-year-old son who is currently in high school.

Marta is requesting the loan to invest in her store that sells women's, men's and children's clothing, toys, kitchenware, and shoes of all styles.

She tells us that she named it "Miscelánea Martita." Marta Julia started her business five years ago, as her husband passed away and she had to see what she could do in order to raise her son.

Her greatest wish is to see her son graduate and go on to university. She is applying for this loan in order to buy more in the way of footwear, clothing, toys and other merchandise, and to be able to expand her business.
