Martha's story

Martha, 42, is married and has two dependent children. She lives in her own home with her family. Her husband works on a large farm and receives stable income every two weeks. The community where they live is 30 minutes from Tambogrande, in the district of Las Lomas. The community wants to get ahead, but they still don't have basic services. Martha's business is selling groceries, beverages, candy, etc. She also has animals and poultry. She divides the work with her children, who take care of the business while she's not there or taking care of the animals. She has worked selling groceries and beverages for more than six years. The whole family contributes to supporting the household. They're a close and enterprising family. Martha wants to expand her business, so she has requested a loan for 2500 nuevos soles [PEN] for working capital to buy for her store and to buy balanced animal feed. She has a great desire for self-improvement and business growth.
