Martha Amalia's story

Martha is 53 years old and is a shop keeper. With the loans that she has had before, she has grown her store which initially just sold drinks. Later, she invested in the infrastructure of her house. Her children are already adults and live independently with the exception of one who was born with special needs and needs her care. She always has the support of her husband. She is requesting this new loan to invest in her business by buying canned goods, sausages, sodas, staple foods, cosmetics, cereals, plastic goods, personal grooming products, house wares, vegetables, dairy products, and others to keep growing her business and so to support her family.
