Martha Lorena's story

Martha Lorena is a merchant at one of the markets in the city of León. She leaves the house where she lives at 6:00 a.m. to start her work at 7:00, and she finishes at 5:00 p.m. She travels to Managua once a week to buy her products. She is the mother of four children, of whom only one is still in her care and of school age. She started her business by traveling to Honduras and selling her products as a mobile vendor, but she now has a fixed location.

She will use the loan she is requesting from Ceprodel to buy new products which are in fashion, such as underwear, children's clothing, towels, sheets, shorts, shirts, etc. This will allow her to attract more customers and increase her sales and her earnings to support her family.

Her dreams are to be able to finish improving her home, and to help her children become professionals with a better future pursuing a career.
